BTW the radio this morning said the Michigan food stamps program has cut her off of the program.
Amanda, use some money, by yourself a clue, sell one of your two houses and invest wisely. Get an education too and a job.
After receiving a $1 million check from the state lottery, a Michigan resident continued to use a state-issued food stamps card to buy her groceries, according to reports from Detroit Local 4 and the Daily Caller.
“I thought that they would cut me off, but since they didn’t, I thought maybe it was okay because I’m not working,” said the 24-year-old winner, Amanda Clayton, who receives $200 a month in state assistance. Her case has prompted lawmakers to propose a bill requiring the lottery to alert the state of winners so they can be taken off such programs.
From the Daily Caller:
When Local 4 asked if she felt she had a right to the money, Clayton responded, “I mean I kinda do.”
Clayton justified the sentiment by explaining that after taking her winnings in a lump sum and having to pay taxes, the total amount was just over half of the initial winnings.
“I feel that it’s okay because I mean, I have no income and I have bills to pay,” she said. “I have two houses.”
