Can a lottery winner still collect food stamps?

Want to know what's wrong with government, in one easy lesson? Try this:

A Michigan man--one "Leroy Fick"--won a $2 million jackpot in a state lottery. He had to pay over half that amount in taxes, leaving him with a net of $850,000.

Before winning the jackput ol' Leroy was on food stamps. After he won he asked the state office that administers food stamps for Michigan if he still qualified for food stamps. After all, the gubmint doesn't consider lottery winnings taken as a lump sum as income.

You can guess the rest: He's still qualified for food stamps, and is still getting them.

Our current government--whether at fed, state, city or county levels--is insanity.
