It's funny when you break down the text of the commercial featuring a picture of John Gomez, SR.
Who's really behind the Ads Opposing the Indian Gaming Agreements? Their paid for by a Vegas Casino owner and two racetracks.
OP: Let's see, this ad tries to get us to believe that Las Vegas casino owners are bad, but a tribe like Pechanga, that destroys some of its members heritage, income and tramples on their civil rights are good, but a Las Vegas casino, that pays over 29% of it's income to the state, which allows their citizens to pay NO STATE INCOME TAX is bad. WE need to get more money from these Indian Casino operators so that CALIFORNIANS can have their tax burdens reduced.
In fact only two tribes oppose the agreements and while tribes statewide support the measure
FACT: The new compacts DO NOT GIVE ANY MORE MONEY TO TRIBES WITHOUT CASINOS
FACT: There are also Indians STATEWIDE that do NO support the agreements. There are THOUSANDS of Indians that have been screwed by their tribes, in order to take their per capita benefits away and keep that money for themselves.
FACT: A NO VOTE will mean that the big four tribes will continue to PAY THE SAME AMOUNT to those tribes AND will in fact STILL allow the big four to make the HUNDREDS of MILLIONS a year.
