It's no joke! I heard on one of the news channels, Fox I think, that one of the proposed bailouts for Social Security is a NATIONAL LOTTERY.  Now, if they would let China play via the net we could also solve the balance of trade in one package deal.  Just the fact that some lawmaker has injected the idea says that some day we will have a national lottery.  Probably need one very soon if that nation debt keeps on going and going!

    A national lottery to bail out social security or eduction federally would not surprise me and I would play if the ticket cost was a dollar per play.

      A national lottery was tossed around a while back and if memory serves me the USA decided that it was not a good idea they sited many reasons from corrupt countries pouring drug money into the pot in an attempt to launder it. And poor countries not being able to compete with it. More reason were sited besides these.

      As far as social SS lottery. We would benefit more if every taxpayer in addition to paying their weekly ss tax donated 5 dollars towards it every week and that money was put into a high yield fund.
