OK so here in California they are talking about IOU's for state refund because we are so broke granted I don't like it but whatever. My question is with the california lottery the people who win and take the lump sum usually end up with about half of their winnings - what happends to the other half? Why can't it go towards stimulating the state so that the people who are expecting a refund from California can get it instead of an IOU? Another thing the people who have to pay taxes can't send California an IOU saying they will pay it when they can, so why does the state get to do it to the people?
