What future Republican president would have the COURAGE to write an executive order to totally ban ALL FEDERAL TAXES ON FUTURE LOTTERY WINNERS? 

Heck if we want to go that far then what Republican candidate would actually have the COURAGE to propose "specific big cuts to the budget" in order to balance it and save the country from the fate of Detroit?Big Grin

    Apparently you don't do much research because less than a year ago the President purposed raising the tax rate on Americans making over $250,000. If it was easy as writing an executive order as you suggested, why was it voted down in Congress?

    Have any more other non-lottery related nonsense?

      When Republican Presidents get the country into wars- they ought to remember that someone has to pay for it.There is no such thing as a " free war".There is no such thing as balancing the budget when you have more than one war on your hands either.
      What are you thinking.

        If it cuts taxes how else will the government pay the interest on the national debt of more than $16,000,000,000,000 - that's $16 Trillion  (Drum) ?             Be grateful that China has not found an alternative to US Treasury bonds

        That money's gone fo ever

          The country itself wont ever end up like China...I don't buy into the fearmongering, and propaganda....but no let me repeat NO president whether theyre republican or democrat will ever end federal taxes on lottery winnings, first off the 1% would go off their rockers if that was even proposed, also they wouldnt even let that get close to happening  LOL

            Your pretty touchy on politics aren't you.  I know you can type but i didn't know you couldn't read.  The last 2 presidents have written a ton of executive orders for all kinds of things that by pass congress and the constitution but if you had did your research correctly you would have known that.

            The other part was about which future elephant would propose spending cuts to balance the budget.  I never said anything about a current donkey raising taxes.   I never said anything about an elephant cutting taxes. 

            If a family had 40k after taxes and were spending 50k would the family demand 10k more or less from the employer? lol no.  They would cut 10k from the spending. 

            It's not nonsense its common sense.

              You're confused. Even if the president could simply ban federal taxes with a signature, it would be an act of stupidity, not bravery. The federal government gets absolutely nothing as a result of lotteries except for the taxes. There is absolutely zero incentive for the federal government to relinquish the revenues they collect from lottery winners, even though it's quite modest compared to overall revenue.

                The real question is, "Why does America tax the living crap, out of its people?". Most civilized societies and advanced nations, even banana republics, do not tax lottery winnings.

                  "It's not nonsense its common sense."

                  Certain gambling winnings are taxable income and that includes lottery winnings. And like most Federal laws, Congress wrote the bills, passed the legislation, and the President signed it into law. As I tried unsuccessfully to explain to you before, no U.S. President can Constitutionally repeal laws enacted by Congress.

                  Why not discuss professional or college football and basketball in the "Lottery" Discussion Forum? We haven't had a heated religious debate in a long time either.

                        I don't think we have to worry about a republican president for a very, very, very long time.  You can not win the presidency by moving away from the gays,different races of people, women, changing voter rules in republican states, being associated with extreme right wingers, being associated with the tea party, and so on and so on.  The republican party is falling apart day by day.

                          If you really THINK that lottery winners need more money.  Find your nearest lottery winner and give him a check. What the heck, empty you bank accounts and give it to the lottery winner.  And since rich people are the ONLY people creeating wealth.  Once you give the money to them money will just fall out of the sky into your pocket. That is the Republicoward plan.

                            Forbes campaigned on flat rate taxes, but never really explained how the current deductions were applied. If all taxes including lottery winnings or any gambling winnings were taxed by a flat rate, losing tickets could no longer be deducted. I don't recall Forbes mentioning his formula for capital gains either.

                            Maybe that's why he was never considered a serious candidate.
