The government helps themselves to our money having squandered much of what they already received.
If our government really wanted to help they would reduce their share of the take.
Make it easier to win, smaller game matrix evenly divisable such as 5/35 and 6/48 games.
Make the prizes tax free.
Pour the game profits into scholarships.
Wake me up when it happens.
Thanks for responding Bob!
That is a great idea! Pour the profits into scholarships! Tax free prizes!
I was watching that John Oliver program, and it seems that (for North Carolina at least) that education is advertised as the benificary of lottery.
But it also seems that "normal" city taxes, that are used for education, are replaced with lotto funds and not ADDED to the fund.
If normal city taxes yielded 1 million budget for schools, and lottery adds 1 million "bonus" dollars for schools, then that should be 2 MILLION total.
But as you mentioned, goverenment helping themselves to "our" money, then it seems that government, will figure out a way,
to take 500 thousand bonus dollars from the lottery, and replace 500 thousand normal city taxes, so now you should have 1.5 million for schools and .5 million bonus.
Being now that we are "overbudget on taxes", we can now take 500 thousand dollars surplus and spend it on, lets say "something else"
Wake me up when I make sense.
