  •  I really despise the lottery (3+ / 0-)

    It is most certainly a poor tax; it plays on the false hopes that you can be wealthy by throwing a few dollars in a pot, and it is disproportionately played by the poor; not because they are stupid, but because they are desperate.   Its one of the worst regressive taxes ever dreamed up.

    Having said that, the congressman's proposals is not a good one, but I can see where he is coming from.  There is a reason that food stamps can't be redeemed for cash.
