fox 8 is my local channel!  where are you? 

Quoting Mamasgirl524:

Lmfao possibly! I just read it on fox 8 facebook.

Quoting almondpigeon:

Ack!  I'm in NC & haven't heard this.  How will they know if someone is on PA? If I show up in my jammies, crocs & 5 kids in tow, will they assume I'm on PA?

When I worked at the gas station the powerballs were 2 dollars.

Quoting VannaMae307:

The $1 tickets won't do much. It's the $20 powerball tickets that do the megabucks winnings.



Quoting JDmommyJD:

Hey.. That $1 ticket might get them off pa forever.

I'm in Tobaccoville...just read the article on the website.  He doesn't think people in bankruptcy should buy tix either.  He sounds really lovely.

Which I would totally agree with, but I'm not sure how cash benefits work but you can probably just pull the cash off.

Quoting 1likeme:

I can't see how they would be able to do that unless they are blocking the ability to pay for lottery purchases with a card issued by welfare.

1 mom liked this
I see the point of it but in the end it won't do any good. People will find a way to get them. The only way they can stop them is on their cards but many on PA have jobs and can just spend that money. Plus, even if they find a way to stop them it isn't like they will suddenly have enough money to get off PA. They will just end up costing more taxpayer money trying to implament and enforce the law.
