We could put an end to this scourge if we taxed lottery winnings at 100%.
 
2012-09-29 09:21:14 PM  
As I see it, Lottery winnings are often considered windfall income, and while said wind fall may put you in a higher tax bracket for that reporting year, if the winnings were taken as a one time payment, it will only reflect on that one particular years tax reporting. so she could've gone from having a net income of less than 20k one year, then hit a $770,00 in come the next, back to less than 20k the next. So if the benifits were based on net income, then she would still hae been elligable for bennies at that point. Benifits are also based on house hold income.

it must also be considered that more often than not, if one does get a windfall like that, the nice people at the welfare agency will also take out a pound of flesh for benefits delivered.


under these presumptions.Mitt Romney has been technicly umemployed for several years and might very well be elgible for food stamps himself.

does he have any below poverty level sisterwives sucking on the teat?

Unless she's parking that money in gold bars at her house, she'd probably have interest or investment income above $20k the following year.

Oh who am I kidding, she probably spent it all on drugs and cars after the first month.

most states won't count 1 car and a house as assets. Otherwise if you have any money or investments lying around you probably won't be getting welfare.

Incidentally this is why welfare queens often have nice cars/clothes/etc. (denali edition GMC SUV's etc.) as you can't really save up a nest egg and still be on welfare (though I suppose you can always hide your money under a mattress or in a safe, just stay away from banks).

Bullshiat....she was a scammer and thought she was entitled to food stamps and welfare because she didn't have a job....despite the fact that she had half a mil in the bank. The world is no better off because of her wasted life.
