Talk about the rich getting richer, WTF?!?!
The least deserving but best-prepared lottery winners in history – an already-loaded trio of wealth managers from prosperous Greenwich, Ct. – came forward Monday to claim a $254 million Powerball jackpot.
The three fat cats will take home an after-taxes lump sum of $104 million in cash – the 12th biggest jackpot in Powerball history and the largest in the state of Connecticut.
The quick pick ticket, bought at a Stamford gas station, cost just $1.
“Not a bad investment, huh?” said their lawyer, Jason Kurland.
The trio stayed mum so long after the Nov. 2 Powerball drawing that the state lottery put up billboards begging the winners to come forward .
Kurland said they spent the time “doing tax planning, estate planning – getting all of our ducks in a row.”
It goes without saying that the folks who are part of the “Occupy” movement aren’t exactly excited for them…
The irony of well-to-do bankers hitting the jackpot was perhaps best appreciated at Zuccotti Park, where demonstrators have been complaining for months about the the top 1% making out like bandits while everyone else struggles.
“This exemplifies the predicament in this country. The rich are getting richer off the poor,” said Occupy Wall Street protester Matt Schaffer, 19, a sophomore at Brooklyn College.
“The lottery screws the poor to begin with, the fact that rich men won is an insult.”
Ain’t that some hatin’ isht?? Just because you’re already rich doesn’t mean you can’t be lucky too!
Hate it or love it?!?!
