Lottery Winners Taxed More than CEOs

There are 3 comments on the Daily Kos story from Mar 31, 2013, titled Lottery Winners Taxed More than CEOs. In it, Daily Kos reports that:

If you were taking home a $520 paycheck every week and invested $1 a week for a lottery ticket, wouldn't you feel very fortunate if one day you eventually hit the jackpot for $13 million? Wouldn't you still feel grateful if the government took almost a third of it in income taxes? Of course you would, you wouldn't be greedy, you'd be "blessed".

Well I guess for CEOs they can taxed them regularly but for lottery winners they can only taxed you once they win that is why they take advantage of it. I hope they can find ways not to tax lottery winners so much.

..... Politicians are faced with having to collect a lot of money to pay for a part of government expenditures, borrowing the remainder. And they try to make payment of taxes as painless as possible, with minimum possible complaints and minimum losses of votes for their party.
