Both lotteries are about out of new states to add to make up for the lagging sales.  No one talks about the battered economy that has continued to get much worse since 2008.  With money tight you need it for rent and electric instead of extra tickets.

I Agree!

The middle class has indeed been getting hammered. The poor have been given a permanent life line while the wealthy have had a prosperous past 5 years due to the financial market.

The middle class families are barely making ends meet yet our Government puts on an act like they care and fight for these folks. The wealthy have cut back on hiring and opening new businesses instead relying on a robust stock market that has been artificially inflated due to the bond buying program. Under these circumstances, the income gap between the top 2% and the rest of the population will continue to widened and yet the wealthy will continue to be frowned upon by the mainstream media as being evil and greedy.

People need jobs and although raising the minimum wage might help it won't make a dent in terms of helping the middle class. Unfortunately, playing the lottery is a last ditch effort for many of those struggling. They can't rely on our Government so they pray and hope for the best from the lottery Gods.

    Looks like there was a Powerball winner tonight, so all the focus will stay on MM next week Big Grin

    If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
    If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

            I Agree!  "Bond Buying Programs"

             

            It was all so easy to be a politician since 1983 after Paul Volcker fixed our problems.  Now unemployment is back.  Next will be the problem of higher interest rates.  The voters will scream at the politicians.  The politicians will scream at Janet Yellen.  The europeans are already screaming at Marco Draghi.   I don't think Janet Yellen will ultimately get Time Magazine person of the year or the peaches & cream congressional hearings that Alan Greenspan & Ben Bernanke got do you?

              I guess we won't be seeing any news until the jackpot goes over $300 million which could be next Tuesday. I am buying my ticket anyway for this Friday as I am a sucker for punishment.

                I bought mine this evening, along with 5 Louisiana Lotto tickets for a chance at $1.2million and a $50,000 raffle on April 1.
