I think if they really want the lottery tickets. They would find away to get them. even if they had to have someone else purchase them. Just saying it is like with anything,if you really want it,you will find away.
If the government is so worried about what people do with money that comes from the government, they should also nag the wealthy corporations that get tax breaks/TARP money as to what they're doing with their money too, right?
Hmm. Well, I'm fine with lottery being accessible to everyone. I don't care if someone's on welfare or not; the net result is that it's profitable for states that need the cash.
I'm not sure most welfare recipients are unmotivated enough to stay on welfare for the rest of their lives, because it sure pays less than disability and unemployment. So why not play the lottery every now and then? I doubt a lot of money is being squandered on the lottery by welfare recipients, as families of four receive roughly $500 a month, and individuals receive up to $200 a month. That's not a lot of cash for frivolities.
Even those on welfare should dream big, too.
I'll be hypocritical here (at least I'll admit it). I do like to play lotto some but still. I do not think that the government should be in the gambling business. I don't think anyone should be able to buy lottery tickets from the government.
Isn't it hilarious that the cash 3 game is the same exact game as the old illegal numbers game that used to be run by the mob?
There are alot of people who had to take government assistance for a short time in this economy. That does not make them "Lifers"
