A welfare lottery ban?
That’s what’s being proposed in North Carolina, according to the Examiner.
The bill would ban anyone who’s filed for bankruptcy or on welfare, and is being spearheaded by Rep. Paul Stam, according to the Examiner.
Under the bill, those who sell lottery tickets to those ineligible would face penalties.
How do you feel about this?
They would know once you go to collect.
Which has nothing to do with punishing the person who sells them. Presumably the point is to stop the sale using cash assistance which comes loaded on a debit card like food stamps, but unles NC does it different, most states use those cards for more than one thing.
Oh, and this isnt' just an Examiner SEO story, it's everywhere. http://abclocal.go.com/wtvd/story?section=news/local&id=8966694

How would they know it's a cash transaction. If someone should win, penalizing the person who sold you the ticket makes no sense.
