welcome to the entitlement era...Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.
We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

More than likely a Democrat voter. I mean, she has 2 houses after winning $1 million yet she's struggling. You're right. Welcome to the entitlement era. And of course our resident libs won't see a problem with this. Of course, chances are she'll be broke by the end of the year anyway.Deplorably Proud To Be An American

She committed fraud by not reporting her winnings, and will have to pay the state back. She also could be prosecuted for a criminal offense, although that will likely result in fines and not prison time.
If her fines amount to more than what's left of her winnnings, she will have to go to work to pay them off, since by committing welfare fraud she is not eligible for anymore benefits at the state level. I think that would be justice served.

She's just young and not very smart. And the kind of "not very smart" that she carries around will probably not be diminished by time.
Handling large sums of money is not easy. Most people simply cannot do it, and virtually no 24 year old can do it. I am a little encouraged by the house she bought, but only a little. Maybe things will turn out alright for her. As for the Bridge Card? May as well let her keep it; she's going to be reapplying anyway.

I've seen it pop up a couple of times in the past that by some state laws, multimillionaires can qualify for food stamps because their investment income isn't counted on the application. When this came up, I figured that the winnings weren't included as income. If so, we have two examples in one of poor laws running the welfare state and this wonderful entitlement mentality.Romans 6:18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.
