    She won all that money and she`s going to buy a freakin Subaru?!?!Green laugh

    Dude, she's only going to end up with about $30,000,000 after the government rapes her if she takes the lump sum.  That's not a whole lot of money.

      You mean from the dying middle class to everyone else rich and poor?

      Did we ever had a middle class in the United States? We are a social democracy, the lottery is our number 1 social program.

        $30 Million dollars liquid net worth? We have to pay taxes, because we are not living in a third world country.

          Since they were together when they bought the ticket, why do you think they claimed it just in her name, rather than as a couple?  Maybe the two tickets were one for each of them???  But even so, why claim it like that? 

          I'm guessing they must have some special tax consequences, but just wanted to discuss to see it there is anything to learn here.

            I don't believe in lottery winnings being taxed at all really.

            39% Federal tax is just insane!  If lottery winners should be taxed 10% would be more than enough.

            Some other countries do not tax lottery prizes at all, and we could do the same. 

            The government is a greedy beast who can never be satisfied.

               The Lottery is an equal opportunity game. Anybody can win. Of course one must be 18 years old or older.

                I agree with the 10% Fed tax proposal. Even better make it a 0% tax rate.

                I am thinking about winning and then coming onto this Lottery Post site and update everyone here. Just thoughts going through my mind.

                I Agree!..and that is why when l read statements like " the lottery is fixed" because ONLY CA, NJ, NY & FLORIDA win...l simply roll my eyes.

                For all we know- the next winner could be from the Virgin Islands. 

                I just call them trolls. There are people who are beyond help so it's best to just let them be.

                That money's gone fo ever

                    Kudos and Congrats to the new multi millionaires !!!

                    So what if they want the subaru.... Maybe it's what works for them and puts a smile on their faces. While they seek public spot light fame with their fortune, maybe in their personal life purchases they are not so flamboyant.

                    I did like the email to the coworkers......... Here's hoping they have a great life Cheers

                        Some ppl simply do not need anything other then a reliable and safe car. Nothing wrong with her saying what she will buy. its her money , her choice.

                        Cars lose value the moment they pull off the lot, so why not make the loss be low.

                        Only negative I have to say is that until that money hits the bank account, stay employed. Quitting before hand,unless you have income to sustain is unwise.

                        May they enjoy the winnings and live healthy lives.

                          The Subaru Forester seems just a little ostentatious to me
