It has gotten to the point now where national lottery winners are starting to look like hoes while the federal government looks like a pimp. When a person wins the lottery in most states the government gets one third off the top. It doesn’t put one penny in with you but takes a big chunk of each persons winning. I just don’t think that this is correct. I could understand if the fed put a penny or even five cents in to help on the bet. But they put nothing in.. While winners look over federal strong arming of winners. When a player wins a one hundred million dollar jackpot. Then fines that they might be luck to get home with fifty million dollars. Some one has got to question the greed of the federal government. It is not fair when you put nothing in to help to win.
