No, what makes me angry is when I see people who are well off financially playing the lottery.They drive really expensive cars, live in 3 million dollar homes in an upscale gated community, but that's not good enough, they want it all. I say let the blue collar workers catch a break.
There should be a rule when purchasing tickets. Present your last year's tax records, and if it exceeds $50,000 a year, then you're excluded from playing.
I think you left out a zero or two off that # I make well over $50,000 and hardly consider myself finacially well off.
I bust my ass at work to pay my bills, sure I live in a nice house, but won't be able to retire in it unless I get a nice win,
my truck is 16 years old.
If you exclude everyone that makes $50,000 or more you'll just reinforce the notion that the lottery is a tax on the poor,
and the JP will grow slower and therefore hit less often and ppl. will loose interest.
the lottery knows this and that's why it will never happen.
