If they can make sales, collect the money, & make the drawings; they can pay out winnings.
Make it hurt the American people as much as possible. Unprecedented closures of open air parks and memorials, armed blockages of privately owned businesses leasing federal lands, etc etc. One side wants to negotiate on Obama's signature program, the other side says no negotiation - give us everything or nothing, we'll negotiate later i.e. "I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today". What DC lacks is real leadership. That starts in the White House, and we sure aren't getting it from there.
This is just BS. Fire them all.
The federal govt will not allow the District of Columbia to pay. The lottery winners have to wait just like the SCHOOLS, POLICE, FIRE, EMS, MEDICAID, TRASH PICKUP.
What DC lacks is the RIGHT TO VOTE. What CONGRESS lacks is leadership. DC residents cant and did not vote for any of them.
DC leaders have been using the unspent money from 2013 but are prohibited by federal law from using its 1.4 billion local rainy day fund.
DC leaders have had to resort to disrupting congressional press confrences, interupting the president while meeting with congress.
DC leaders have approved EMERGENCY LEGISLATION to allow the city to spend its own money until congress gets its act together. BUT DC local laws have to be approved by congress.
DC leaders have been threatened with arrest if they spend any money not authorized by CONGRESS.
DC leaders have already walking a tightrope by spending any money since october 1.
DC HAS PLENTY OF LEADERS that cant run the city with its own money. So if you live in a STATE and have the right to vote PLEASE VOTE OUT THE PEOPLE YOU VOTED FOR.
DC residents are waiting.
