    I Still Don't Get it?????

    550 mil in what, eight weeks. That's something like 65 million a week. But let's cut the hype factor out and say we're just looking at a 40 million per week rate of growth X 52 weeks = roughly two billion dollars, or potentially two thousand millionaires each year if we give it away a mil at a time. But we have to give it all to just a few.

    And what about this, why not a healthcare lottery to offset the rising cost of healthcare in this country? Let everyone benefit from a national lottery system that's producing 2000 new millionaires a year and also doing some financial good for everyone? Makes perfect sense to me.

    Why is it that we feel we have to give all that money to just a few? In fact, why doesn't each state do this?

    I don't know? But I gotta believe it has more to do with a bean counter thing on their end.

    Not following you. That stranger could be anyone, maybe someone I know, perhaps even family or friends, maybe someone I don't know but really needs it, maybe several people who really need it. The amount of money paid out wouldn't change, only the way it is paid out with greater odds for everyone, to the benefit of everyone. What the lottery/state/gov takes in would not change regardless how the winnings are paid out. The only thing that would change is the over excessive amount paid out to just a handful of winners. That excess has to be invested somewhere and I think that is bean counter thing?
