Rich should allow us better chance at winning lottery

When is enough enough? I watched all the people’s hype over trying to win the Powerball lottery. I saw some of the TV millionaires like Steven Colbert showing their ticket for the drawing.

He pulls in about $10 million to $12 million a year and he’s buying Powerball tickets too? Isn’t his income enough?

I have cancer and a disabled wife I’m trying to take care of! and I am trying to pay the bills for the operations and treatment that are coming in. I’m up to over $5,000 and climbing. So, yes, I bought a couple Powerball tickets in hopes of taking care of my wife and paying for my cancer treatment and future operations trying to survive my cancer!

I’m very disappointed in all these millionaires buying lottery tickets like they need the money!

Shame on them and their greed!
