In his article Tribal Slots NO JACKPOT for California Peter Hecht discusses how Tribal Gaming is not all it's cracked up to be.
Is it time for Gambling to be legalized throughout the state? Schwarzenegger tried to keep Cah-li-fornians from voting on expanded gaming last year. The tribes ALSO tried to keep us from voting, remember? Now, both the tribes and the Governor are NOT delivering on the promises made to us.
The solution? EXPAND gaming to all Californians. Let it be run like Nevada and let's get the competition STARTED. The tribes, who promised self-reliance, yet destroyed many of their own people, have the advantage of a head start. Let's get California MOVING forward by building casinos near population centers and airports.
More jobs, more income, more taxes.
