As if in follow up to my post yesterday, Yahoo has a news article about a $2M Lottery Winner Using Food Stamps. Apparently he did everything right by notifying the state that he won the money but his gross income is still below the state's guidelines. Maybe he did abide by the law but this is so wrong. With 2 Million Dollars, the man can afford to buy his own food. He should feel terrible about doing it but he doesn't seem to have any remorse. Michigan is in trouble financially and this man should not be soaking the state for food stamps.
This so pisses me off. He is a selfish asshole. Food Stamps are for people who can't afford food. The state doesn't have unlimited resources and for this man to continue using state aid when he doesn't need it is utterly ridiculous. I wish there was a loophole where they could try to get their money back.
