WE NEED A LOTTERY TAX
Should anyone who invested only one dollar be allowed to keep 150 million dollars? There are people in this country that go to bed every night cold and hungry. There are people that are sick; people that are unemployed. Why should these three people walk away with 150 million dollars simply because they risked one dollar and got lucky?
LOTTERY WINNERS SHOULD GIVE BACK THEIR FAIR SHARE!
What you may ask is their fair share? That is for people smarter than I to decide. Our government should decide how much these people should be allowed to keep of their lucky lottery win.
There are a lot of lucky lottery winners in this country that keep too much of their purely lucky wins.
Derek Jeter earns 18 million dollars a year to play a game simply because he won the baseball talent lottery. Bill Gates is worth over 50 billion dollars simply because he won the technology talent lottery. Robert De Niro is paid 15 million dollars per film simply for pretending he is someone else. Stephen King earns multiple millions of dollars annually for books he wrote years ago; shouldn’t he share some of that money that he has received simply for winning the talented writer lottery? All of these people love doing what they do; why should they be paid so much for doing what they would all do for much less money when there are so many people earning so little doing jobs they despise?
These lottery winners have too much money. It isn’t fair. I want some. The wealth should be spread more evenly among those who are not as lucky.
How should this money be distributed? I don’t know. I am not that smart.
Probably government should decide.
