Amanda Clayton of Lincoln Park, Michigan won a lottery jackpot worth $1 million, but a local TV news station recently discovered that despite her winnings, she's still using a state-sponsored welfare card to buy $200 of food every month, The Daily Mail reports. As a local reporter points out, those tax dollars could go a long way for residents in a state particularly hard-hit by the recession, but Clayton doesn't seem to see it that way, even though she recently purchased both a new house and a new car with her prize money.

no fucking way! as soon as theres a lotto winner (on state aid),all assistance should be null and void.

Oh you sillies, stop worrying about this poor ignorant woman (who we all know will blow her wad on cocaine and convertibles soon enough) and start worrying about old money.

Those blue-bloods have a lot more than $1m in their coffers, and they're bilking far more than food stamps from the government and the taxpayers.

Patient goes beep beep beeeeeeeeeep
She'll be broke in a year or two anyway.
Then she can get in the back of the line again....she has 2 houses now, she can sell one of them. I like the "I got bills to pay too" excuse and the "they didn't stop sending me money, so I thought it was okay" line....
I wonder if that was because she never told them that she received over $500k. To be honest, I would have done the same thing but in different order and with a little extra: bought a new car, found a place that offering a good paying job and then moved there.
I've lived very comfortably in an apartment making only $25k a year.

and yet, you seem to be ok with that.
I don't waste my time and attention on things I cannot change.

The wealthy have always exploited the have-nots and exerted undue influence on government, and they always will.
