Is the lotto a tax on the poor?

    It is not a tax on the poor; it is a tax on the stupid. Assuming people are stupid because they are poor is SESist, or socio-economic status + ist.

    The lottery is put there (approved by the mob) for money laundering purposes.

    The poor tend to play more often and spend more money on lotteries so lotteries are sometimes described as that.

    But lotteries are not a tax. You have to pay taxes. You do not have to play the lotteries.

    A more fitting description is lotteries target the poor and those that don't understand math very well.

    No. The lottery is a tax on the stupid. You don't have to play. If you understand probability, you won't play.

    Taxes are mandatory. The Lotto is not.

    It does affect the poor but it isn't a tax. A tax is mandated by law. The Lotto is completely voluntary.
