Message Subject Poor Households Earning $13K Per Year Spend Over $1K On Lottery Tickets
Poster Handle mathetes
Post Content
States across the nation rely on poor suckers to fund their spending. No, we’re not talking about taxpayers – we’re talking about lottery ticket purchasers. According to new studies, households earning $13,000 per year spend almost $1,170 per year on lottery tickets – 9 percent of total income. As it turns out, many people living in poverty make poor financial decisions.

Always knocking the poor. While I agree that the odds are definitely not in their favor, it is a rational decision: the off chance of getting out of poverty gives hope....

I'm not knocking the poor for buying lotto tickets, I'm knocking these poor idiots who spend almost 10% of their income on lotto. Save some money, buy your kids some better food, get a fricking education, but don't squander 10% of your income on the lotto
