The bad behavior of the richest: what I learned from wealth managers | US news | The Guardian
Behaviors indulged in the rich are not just condemned in the poor, but used as a justification to punish them, denying them access to resources that keep them alive, such as healthcare and food assistance. Discussion of poverty has become almost impossible without moral outrage directed at lazy “welfare queens”, “crackheads” and other drug addicts, and the “promiscuous poor” (a phrase that has cropped up again and again in discussions of public benefits over more than a century).

Where Does Lottery Revenue Go? - ABC News
even when lottery money is targeted toward a particular purpose, such as education or environmental protection, it has little or no effect.

The lottery money does go to the intended cause. However, instead of adding to the funds for those programs, legislators factor in the lottery revenue and allocate less government money to the program budgets, says one lottery critic, Patrick Pierce, a political scientist at St. Mary's College in Indiana, who has analyzed the impact of lotteries.

"In the first year of a lottery there is a dramatic increase [in spending on education]," he says.

In subsequent years, however, the increase in education spending is much smaller than in states without lotteries, Pierce says, even when adjusting for inflation, number of children in a state, and other factors.

"Given a few years, a state would have spent more on education without a lottery," he concludes.
