glad to see the voters in hampshire have learned a lesson?  and sent  some decent  anti-high tax types to be their Representatives in their state govt for once.

 

i also agree with rdgrnr about libs.  however both parties are to blame for high taxes  , just libs take it to the xtreme end of crazy land.

Republicans too, thro Not nearly in the numbers of libs in state and fed govt , Spend money  they Don't have and get states in debt, hance needing to Tax stuff to pay it off

we just need to take all their credit card powers away and say you Can't spend what you Don't have in first place

, as both party have been acting like careless 5 year olds with parents credit cards in a toys r us super store with. in both state and fed govt level.


but the republicans are at lest trying to do damage control atfer the house is already on fire with debt, a little late to play fire fighters don't you think

http://www.usdebtclock.org/state-debt-clocks/state-of-new-hampshire-debt-clock.html

show them as spending more then their making in nh,


Ether way, a tax on lottery winnings  is very stupid as it gets. we already Give the money to them, knowing odds are agiant us and where helping their state fund whatever it is their lottery funding going to. and then they have the balls to tax us atfer we win,   glad they seen it was a stupid idea for once and changed it, thank god for people using their brains for once.

sense the fed don't get a cut, they already steal up to 35% of it  just be jerks. last thing people need is a state taxing it also.

ether way, gl to you people in new hampshire keeping your state reps on right path to less tax's

 

i also like what time count said

voting where and whether to spend his money. Withholding cash works better than phone calls, marches, or petitions and it can't be countered by subterfuge and force.

your right, that's why if we made govt taxes a thing of the past, and made the  Govt funded like a charity, their 100% donate only

then when ever the govt does something wrong, people just stop donateing their money, and govt Forced to keep us happy and don't piss us off, or no money, then they really work for us,

the sec they can force us to pay them any amount they wish, then their in charge and they don't give a rats beep about us some times

, they pretend to give a <snip> come voting time ofc  , but history shows they glady break a promise and screw the very people who put them in office 

if given a chance to get away with it. they glady take it, no all of them, but a lot of them do that.

but if we made ever thing donation only, then you would Not have  food stamps, no more govt free bes, No thats what food banks, etc is for. you see if you want to help Feed people, Do it your bloody self,  taxes are for stupid people . donation based govt is only smart govt , as it keeps us in power, we control the money, and then their Forced to obey our wish's.  or majority of their funding comes form at lest

 

in this case, the lottery players speaked with their money and thank god they got rid of the tax, as time said, govt listins to money

      After the 10 percent state tax was imposed in 2009, lottery officials watched as scratch ticket sales ... plummeted immediately and continued downward.

      Scratch sales were off 5.82 percent statewide last year. "We were down and Massachusetts, Maine and Vermont were all up," McIntyre said. "To me, that was the statistic that was most telling."

      The repeal of the tax was not some great moral revelation. The tax cost them revenue. They responded to the only vote a citizen has that counts anymore -- voting where and whether to spend his money. Withholding cash works better than phone calls, marches, or petitions and it can't be countered by subterfuge and force.

      The proof is in the pudding. I hope Tennessee can follow suit but something tells me that just aint gonna happen!

        I said it in this very website about 2 years ago. I remember saying the NH lottery sales would plummet so much that they would have to remove the taxes. Hahahaha the people just won and the politicians lost.

        I cant wait for Massachusetts people win like their neighbors to the north.

        That money's gone fo ever

          You can drive over the border all you like you still pay taxes in your state of residence.  What this article doesnt say is what will be cut to make up the difference which is more the talking point.  More than likely education.

          Isn't that the trade off? The more people play since there are no taxes the more that goes to education?

            Exactly, but the way their brains are wired they can't comprehend that.

            And the ones that do comprehend it won't accept it because it doesn't jibe with what they think should work, no matter how many times they are proven wrong.

                So I am wondering how can an individual citizen of the United States can take a stand against paying the penalty for not having health insurance when that diabolical health care reform law kicks into full gear.  Will we see good, honest Americans being sent to prison for refusing to pay the penalty in the taxes to the IRS?  Don't think that will happen?  Just ask Wesley Snipes, Jim Thorpe, and that first Survivor winner.  You only don't go to jail if you are a politician (just ask Charlie Rangel and a host of "the man, the myth, the messiah" nominees who happened to not have paid their taxes until after the fact was discovered).  So I guess the only way to circumvent this health care reform law if A) "the man, the myth, the messiah" is not defeated in the next election and B) one half of Congress remains in Demon-crat hands is to leave the country....darnit, I think I still would have to pay taxes even if I earned none of that income in the US.  So I guess the only solution is to vote "the man" out of office so that health care reform doesn't become legendary.

                Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                  Well, I don't want to get too far off-topic, but I'll just say that 1) laws can be changed and 2) a good number of companies have already gotten health-care waivers.

                  It's not really a Dem vs. Repub issue, although they pretend it is. What one party steals from you (like, say, the Bill of Rights), the other party will keep once they get in to power.

                      I remember reading that post on LotteryPost...now I am sure those in states with RNG are hoping for their perspective lottery heads to come to their senses and bring back the real ball drawings....can I get an AMEN from TN and IN (to name a few)?!!!

                          It is a WONDERFUL thing that New Hampshire also decided to charge ZERO state taxes for lottery winnings! 

                          Patriot

                          I wish that my residence state, Illinois, would follow suit and thus charge ZERO state taxes for lottery winnings (sadly, all of our neighboring states also charge state taxes).  After all, each state's FIRST  round of taxes were collected when I bought each lottery ticket from a lottery retailer.  Rather, my residence state, Illinois, did the opposite by INCREASING the state taxes, by an additional 2%, for lottery win monies (and all other incomes it's residents receive) at the beginning of this year!

                          Having several millions of dollars in my financial accounts means receiving several valuable services each day!

                            NH government got greedy and now can't hide from the foolish mistake. In 2009 they went from having zero(the lowest) gambling tax to 10%(one of the highest). This is a state that has no income tax. Now if they would have just put say a 2% tax on winnings, they probably would have got away with it with very little damage. They went all in and it backfired.

                              Ole Steve Player must be drooling bigtime his home state , he or the corporation win lots of prizes over in NH.  'Wish NY would do this but with Cuomo in charge it will never happen this state is toooo money hungry and screw the players day after day.  Has anyone tried to play the number 999 lately the lottery caps the betting activity at a $5 million payout in NY it sucks plus they should pay what the odds are $1000 for a STR8 hit ........anyway best of luck to those lucky players in NH.  Go Yankees!!!
