    YES, NO TAXES.  NO TAXES.  For me this is a no-brainer, this is not a government game.  I would not mind paying taxes if our self-centered politicians did GOOD with the money.  Not handling it like they are and have been i.e. their asinine pet projects, projects they have an interest in, including any and all "pork", Solyndra, I am 100% opposed to paying a penny to Iran, that is insanity.  As for the schools?  They are in dire need of complete overhaul, starting with the teachers, absolutely NO tenure.

    I am sure there are plenty of legitimate green businesses that could use funding but they never get any help.  One I am watching is Solar Roadways invented by a married couple, I believe in Idaho.

      I'd like to know who voted "no"?  Did they misread the question?  Who wants to give the government more money than we already do???

          Do we have to pay tax on lottery winning? That answer is YES, unfortunately.

                    Kind of amazed at those who desire to pay taxes on their winnings. I wish our dishonest and greedy representatives in congress would give folks a break on taxes like our neighbors up north.

                          I'm starting to think that those who voted "no" thus wanting to pay taxes on lottery winnings may not have understood the question. I can't see anyone in their right mind wanting to pay the government more taxes than necessary unless they have money to burn.

                            I thought that too for a second, as the question is asked in a somewhat roundabout way, but after reading it 10 times I can't see how it's not clear.

                            I understand people paying taxes, I understand wanting to pay taxes, but buying lottery tickets with taxed money, then taxing the revenue and the sales, and then being taxed on the winnings AND capital gains is quintuple dipping as far as I am concerned.

                            Nolege is power.
