A young woman who won $1m on a state lottery has sparked outrage after she admitted to still claiming benefits.


Amanda Clayton of Lincoln Park, Michigan still claims $200 a month in food stamps and despite paying cash for a new home and car said, 'I'm still struggling.'


'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.'

Can you imagine if she did that in another country? Like in Japan or something

I think most if not all social welfare programs need to be trashed. In this case, the social programs she collects from funded the lottery ticket; therefore, the winnings should be distributed between those agencies she collects from. Further, by purchasing a lottery ticket, she has shown she has enough money to buy nonessential things, and should no longer be able to collect from such social programs.

This is the reason I support really really late term abortions. It is never too late to abort, this woman is a perfect example. Someone put the dumb bitch down.

It's things like this where I like to think my state income tax money goes to keeping up some 100 year old lighthouse or something.

I fully volunteer my services. I can donate a JHP.

Its the fucking mentality like this that is a disgrace. She looks more than capable to have a job. Ofcourse I would bet she probably has a bunch of mixed kids to take care of as well.

Bill going thru right now to fix the wagon of leeches like her. Lotto winnings will be treated like income, right now, they aren't. Welfarians are probably the group that spends the most on lotto, they tend to be the laziest and least intelligent in society.

As a follow up on the 2010 $2M/foodstamp guy. He's already broke and still on welfare and been convicted of several crimes. How the fuck do you BLOW through $2M in two years and have nothing to show for it?

Just goes to show that stupid + money = stupid.

That commonly happens with people that win the lottery. They're lower income types that just don't know how to manage money. They blow it all and end up right back where they were.

Poor people have poor ways



You said it! Poor is more of a state of mind/being than it is not having money.

Five hundred thousand fucking dollars AFTER taxes?

What the fuck? I could live on that for probably 10-15 years, no problem, even if I didn't work.

"Still struggling", my ass.

You've gotta understand the welfare mentality.

She earned the lottery money.

She's entitled to the welfare.

If you start out with nothing it takes a LOT to get your life on track. I am not making excuses about them not working there are none for that but starting from a negative is expensive.

So being born with nothing [like everyone is] is an excuse for being a deadbeat loser your entire life? He could have taken the money, went to college, busted his ass studying, gotten an education and changed his life. Instead, he either drank it, smoked it, injected it, or snorted it away.

While all are born with nothing some do have a better chance in life. I am not excusing either of these scumbags actions but some people do have a much better chance at life. A kid born into a family of 8 kids with 8 different dads probably will not become a rocket scientist as compared to a kid with two educated Asian parents.

Have you seen gas prices? Do you know how much it costs to fill the over-sized tank on her blinged out Cadillac Escalade? Stop being so heartless.

I'm utterly shocked that this woman hasn't tithed 10%, put $500k into a trust, then taken $400k and opened up a business that she manages hands on with the dreams of growing it for the purpose of enriching herself and producing jobs for her fellow Americans.

Then she can get some kind of Obama dollars for homeowner assistance or some other scam.

Don't forget disability, that is being drained in record numbers now too.
