So a woman won 4 million dollars before taxes. She got like $1,600,000 after taking the lump sum and taxes . Sad. Since when is taking out more than half of the winnings okay? :(


Did you vote for Obama? He thinks it is OK. 39% rate at federal level alone. He wanted that rate.

Okay? Are you alleging that it is illegal? Immoral? Fattening?


I think that's illegal. Taxes on gambling wins are supposed to be 33 percent, not about 60 percent!

I've always hated the fact that 43 States require Lottery Winners to go public with Lottery Winnings before they can get the money. At least three Lottery Winners were killed for the Lottery Winnings. You'd think these poor three dead people would get Lottery Officials to change the rules to complete Anonymity, but no. I have a novel and radical idea. Pay the Winner in private, and have some Random Lottery Employee pose as the winner in the Press Conference. The general public doesn't know that The Lottery Employee is not the real Lottery Winner and the Real Lottery Winner gets to enjoy his or her Millions in peaceful anonymity. Just hire some bodyguards/security guards/and police escort to prevent the Lottery Employee who didn't ACTUALLY win Millions from being harassed or even worse beat up for money. It's a triple win situation.

So sad that the Couple who found a way to beat the Lottery system(I said beat, not cheat, ;( Hey, that rhymes! ;) were gettting a lot of heat. In the Casino Workd, they would be considered Advantage Players. :)
