Pay off my debts. Invest so I had a monthly income for life (reasonable amount). Pay off children's student loans. Then, once I knew I was fine as far as taxes went I would donate. I need to get caught up on my donations to church, there is a battered women's shelter here I would like to donate to, and I would donate to the American Cancer Society as I have lost some cherished friends.
I would donate to a couple friends student loans as they have been strong supporters of me and all my efforts over the past 10 years. Next, I would consider setting a school with employment assistance for all middle aged adults who are out of work. I know all the problems associated with being middle aged trying to get jobs when most employers overlook you for younger people.
Anything left I would then donate to other charities working with homeless, underprivileged, seniors, and then the school systems. In short I would take care of myself without going overboard and then use the balance to try to make a difference in my children's, a few friends and the rest of the world.
Save most of it. Pay off student loans, newer vehicles, small home purchase. But that is only if it is $1 million after taxes. Before taxes, I might forget the house.
Pay off everybody I owe money to, get new and dependable vehicles for myself and my wife, and sock the rest away in the bank.

By the time the dust settles, there will be more than 7 million paying enrollments into the Obamacare program through the Federal, State, and off exchanges. It also appears that the mix of young and old, while not ideal, may not be too bad; although that remains to be seen.What does it mean...
