3. too many winners

Trump bankrupted casinos with too many winners.

These lotteries undermine presidential power. Arrest them.

4. I hope they got taxes withheld

Lottery plus Ford Expedition= $150K minimum value

Fed marginal tax presumably 24%= 36K
State tax roughly 6%= 9K

So half the cash goes straight out the door by tax time next year, if the shutdown ends soon.

5. Reading further

Since the family was planning to make the Disney trip anyway, they hadn't been hurting before the shutdown.

Not like the janitors having to find food banks.
