He thinks the government should intervene and help people who psychologically can't handle suddenly being rich!? WTF is that!? That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard! And lowering the jackpot will help that!??? If someone can't handle that much money, then they shouldn't be playing the lottery! Or get the government involved.

        So now the greedy Lottery want to take a look at it and put a cap on the money... And keep most of it to themselves... That's not how to do it.. if people can't handle the winnings don't play.... simple

          From a slight mental issue to a heavy mental issue after winning millions... that's a wow... Overly generous that's for sure... I'm sure she'll rest in peace now since she wasn't resting on Earth...

            If you can't handle a large amount of money after winning just ask Oprah or somebody how did they do it... ask Shaq.. ask LeBron James... ask Beyonce and Jay-Z... just ask around...

              There should be a cooling off period before lotteries can identify jackpot winners. Some winners, in the excitement of a major win, agree to go public without really considering the long-term consequence.

                  I will never understand someone buying a lottery ticket who does not want the money. If she wanted to play for fun, choose a game or scratch off ticket with a lower prize. Too bad she had mental illness to deal with. 

                  The brother's suggestion to cap prizes would not help...though I sometimes think capping the top prize at $100M might be a good idea. More money available for more drawings.
