Would you consider someone who won a billion dollar advertised jackpot a billionaire? A billion dollar advertised jackpot would probably be about $654 million lump sum.

        what if they took the billion dollar annuity instead of the lump sum? Maybe they can make the case that they are an annuity billionaire.

              The majority just voted to punish the rich in the election last month.

              So after the 1st of the year, the remains of that billion will be even less than it is now.

              Far, far less if his plans of a 75% tax rate on anything over a million gets through.

                      You will never be "rich" enough to be "punished".  None of us will.  Stop whining.

                      Also, provide proof of these "75% tax rate" plans.

                        Don't worry about it, it's not real.  Ridge is merely substituting his Jack Daniels-fueled paranoia for facts again.

                          Want proof? Go look it up, numbnuts.

                          Then come back and give me a report.

                          Do it now.

                            don't be so pessimistic. Anyone can win the lottery. 1 in 175 mill is about the same odds that MO family had when they played Powerball and now they're rich.

                              I heard France's top tax rate will be 75% in a month. The US top tax rate will go up to 39.8% in January. Will 75% happen in the next few years? I don't know.
