        lottery"

        `"I feel that it's OK because I mean, I have no income and I have
        bills to pay," she said. "I have two houses."'
        \_ My first reaction was pretty hostile to her, but then, I
           thought about it some more, and, well, she did win the
           lottery fair and square, and she did immediately pay half
           million dollars in taxes from the lump sum payment, right?
           She'll likely be broke sooner than later anyway.
           \_ lottery is a form of tax for dumb people.
        \_ "UPDATE: The Michigan Department of Human Services announced
            yesterday that they have taken Amanda Clayton off the Michigan

           Yay, responsive government!

3/5     My dad is retired and has no income. My income tax bracket is
        pretty high. If I open up a joint high interest CD account with

        100% to take advantage of the lower tax?

And Clayton isn't embarrassed about living off the state even though she now finds herself in the nation's top tax bracket. "I mean I kinda do," Clayton told Local 4 when asked if she had a "right" to the government welfare. doesn't the fit the mold of other lottery winners we have told you about here at the Sideshow, including the number of repeat winners of the Georgia State Lottery, many of whom chose to donate their initial winnings to charity or family members in need. Clayton downplayed her wealth, saying she took the $1 million in a lump sump, which meant about half immediately went to taxes. "I feel that it's OK because I mean, I have no income and I have bills to pay," she said. Her story has already caught attention locally, where state Republican Rep. Dale Zorn has sponsored a bill preventing individuals like Clayton from taking state financial assistance. "Public assistance should be given to those who are in need of public assistance, not those who have found riches," Zorn told Local 4 The bill, which has already passed the state House and has a sister bill in the Senate, would require the state to cross check the names of lottery winners over $1,000 to see if they are also receiving state financial benefits. s=13704978&pt=storypage&t=1628175920&sec=MediaInfiniteBrowse&ret=7da b9d16-eb9e-5484-b5c5-a47c097f36da%3A050d241e-df42-31d1-b952-be1b0f113ca 5%3A2f972b5d-ac44-3cd2-8f11-6ce83d33f738%3A9a94b3d7-3088-33bb-9b13-3fbf af9c6d63&pstaid=06590ccd-3b52-3be2-b3ea-502e2829b909&csrcpvid=wzjZ90PDl Dm0nkWguZPcBAJBRTfow09YXIEACw_p Today on Yahoo! Orlando, Florida o 9 hrs ago This story highlights several issues. An individual that leaches off society and a State and Federal Government that is so incompetent that it can't effectively manage the funds it dolls out. The really sad part is that this is not an isolated case. Wausau, Wisconsin o 9 hrs ago Absolutely hilarious- If there is one single article that could sum up why our country is in the toilet, this would be it. Los Angeles, California o 8 hrs ago And this is why people don't like public assistance. It isn't used correctly and those that do need it can't get on it for the leeches! Reno, Nevada o 10 hrs ago First of all she should pay back what she has taken needlessly. Secondly, she should also be sentenced to some type of community service.
