We can afford to give billions away in the lottery, but can't afford to feed the hungry or give medicine to the sick. This is one screwed up country.
Those are two different things ...
The money in the lottery is put in .. one dollar at a time .. by people buying a chance.
The proceeds from that go to running the state ... paying for things like roads and schools
and other state things that need money. It's a good way to earn revenue for the state.
The entitlement money comes from tax money.
I don't see why you are putting the two together for comparing????
