Winners Of Illinois Lottery Aren’t Paid After State Admits ‘It Cannot Payout’ Due To Budget Problems

Liberalism is really working out in Illinois these days.

In fact, it’s working out so well that lottery winners are not even getting paid anymore because the state is so bankrupt.

But winners of the Illinois state lottery were in for a nasty shock when they were given IOU’s and not their cash due to the ongoing state budget impasse, which has left the agency out of money.

The problems have come about because lawmakers haven’t passed a budget and so lottery officials don’t have legal authority to do payouts.

Officials announced that people who had won more than $600 in the Illinois Lottery would not get their money right away.

 

Please Obama, tell us how those big government spending policies are working out in your home state.
