According to MSNBC a Michigan lottery winner is still on food stamps even after he won a 2 million dollar lottery prize, bought a house, a 2008 Audi and investing the rest. Just shows why we should not have any government run program. The morons cannot get themselves out of the deal because of their own bureaucracy!
Why the guy would still want to be on food stamps, just accentuates the greed and desire for a handout.
Yep. He won two million dollars. The state took 1.1 million of it in taxes. This is just how evil our government is.
If true he still has a million totally unearned.
The funny thing is, he is utilizing a law built for the rich. His lottery money is classified as liquid assets, and don't play a role in the calculation...like those people who get the majority of their income from capital gains. It is kind of hilarious that he is using this law and ticking off the Republicans, when it was a Republican only sponsored law to begin with. Classic. I love irony
So What? What business is that of yours? None! You are simply looking for something to complain about just like a nagging wife.
There must be far more to this story than appears. Lots of businesses and business people can get their accountants to work the system so they pay hardly any tax. The whole thing seems designed to show case how much Americans are over-taxed.
When will someone flip it over and ask would he be better off not living in the USA, because the taxes are to high?
Or are taxes in the USA too high, compared to other countries? And how about putting the money off-shore?
