What a bunch of greedy Marxist morons!  How stupid can they get...a mandatory tax on top of a voluntary tax?

    The PA lottery has got so tight over the past few years, with it being really bad lately,

    that this might be the final straw for a lot of us.... especially the people playing instant

    tickets.

     

    While I don't think it's "initially" that big of a deal..... 3.07% isn't that bad, the problem

    is once they get their fingers in the cookie jar they will soon enough be shoving both hands

    the whole way in. The tax system is a joke as it is. The amount of tax money I paid out last

    year is sick.

     

    I worked very hard for five years of my life getting a good education that is costing me a lot

    of money each month. On top of that, it took me two years after I graduated to find a good

    job in the field that I got a degree in. In those two years, I worked a lot of fairly lack luster and

    very under paying jobs just to keep myself afloat. Now that I have a good job, I pay out almost as

    much money in taxes as I took home the year before.

     

    I think truly the only people who aren't screwed in this world any more are the people who don't work

    and live off the system and the rich people. Anyone else gets bent over backwards and taken for a ride.

    Wrongo  GetReal!!!  They are getting bent over forwards!

    They always want to beat more money out of the taxpayers..... but what did they do with the money they already took?

    Why they spent it on waste, fraud, abuse and pork of course!

      Uh huh, this is what politicians, in all countries, have always done. Smash

        I'd like to see them do something good with what they're already taking. Let them prove they deserve

        to put even more money into their greedy hands first.

          Our participation in the Pennsylvania Lottery ALREADY funds State Programs that aid our Senior Citizens!

          Taxing our winnings would be ridiculous!
