Is The $1.5 Billion Powerball Jackpot Nothing But A Regressive Tax?...from TPC

Americans are flocking to buy tickets for the $1.5 billion Powerball jackpot!

People who have never played the lottery before along with the wealthy are playing because, with this much cash on the line, 'you have to be in it to win it'!

But for the majority of people who stand on long lines to buy a chance at winning the 'dream', can they really afford to take a shot at 1 in 292 million odds?

Or is the lottery nothing but a regressive tax on the poor?
