    Illinois, the home of President Barack Obama and many other lefties, is currently SCAMMING THE POPULACE by committing lottery fraud. If you win, they don't pay.

    Welcome to liberal politics.

    Lottery winners in Illinois may have hit the jackpot - but they have not been paid.

    The state recently announced that it was not paying out any winnings worth more than $600 until its budget crisis is resolved - but it's still running TV ads promoting the lottery.

    An attorney representing some of the winners, Tom Zimmerman, has said there is a staggering $288 million in winnings waiting to be paid out.

    This is the kind of crap they pull in Venezuela.

    The reason the Illinois politicians are fucking idiots is this: they raise TONS of cash by operating the lottery. If they stop paying the winners, they'll lose even more money when people wise up and quit playing.

    Thanks, Libs. Good thinking. As though a lottery isn't enough of a license to steal, now you've decided to stop paying the winners...indefinitely.

    The country is unravelling around the edges. One day, it will go full tilt.

    The state doesn't have a budget. They have been twiddling their thumbs for months.

    For awhile the most someone could get on a payout was 25k. Now it's $600. I can care less about some lottery fiend having to wait for their big payout.

    I'm more worried about some essential programs that are being staggered back due to these assholes in Springfield (Republicans and Democrats).

    Funny how you leave out the fact that since Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner wont sign off on the budget the law says they cant release the money to write the checks.

    I really don't know Illinois politics, but it's a blue state forever.

    This mess is nothing new.

    How is it LEGAL or ethical to sell lottery tickets when you're not going to pay out the winnings?

    I don't get it. If that's the case, why start an incendiary thread? For clicks?

    The lottery fund basically is using a discretionary fund to pay out the low winners. The money they take in for lottery, like tax money from the Illinois people is just sitting there waiting to be approriated by a budget.

    The reason given is the "budget crisis."

    The Illinois budget has been in crisis for a long time, and it will continue to be in crisis long after this year.

    I suspect the Republican Governor is trying to put an end to the constant deficits which have created the problem.

    Illinois could stop selling lottery tickets but there would be a damn rampage from the lottery addicts who throw away their money on a daily basis. You'd be amazed at the amount of people who line up and plunk down $20,$40 for a scratch-offs and daily draw.

    So I'm guessing the 29 cents of every dollar goes to education, is not happening either. Shocker.

    Meh, big deal.

    All they need is a young, aspiring Race Baiter Ginsberg-esque judge in training to sanction their blatantly fraudulent practices and then there isn't shit we can do about it.

    Or if it's like California, then they'll give the .29¢ from the lottery proceeds to the schools, as promised, and then turn right around and take back .29¢ that had previously been going to the schools from the general fund.

    Oh, and then complain that our public schools are chronically underfunded. That's straight out of the DNC playbook. :D
