Why Democrats and Governor Jerry Brown DO NOT CARE about Tribes Violating Civil and Human Rights

It's the MONEY.    Surprised?  Anyone...?  Anyone?  

California Nations Indian Gaming Association has put a study out on the impact of Indian Gaming.


Tribal government gaming generates important benefits across California’s economy, according to a new study conducted by Beacon Economics, a leading independent economic research firm. The study, commissioned by the California Nations Indian Gaming Association (CNIGA), surveyed gaming and non-gaming tribes across the state, including a cross section of large and small casinos in urban and rural markets with a range of amenities including hotels, restaurants, retail establishments and entertainment venues. The study finds that Indian gaming operations provide significant benefits throughout California’s economy. 
"California tribes made a promise to California voters: we promised we would provide for our people (OP:  The never said they would screw THOUSANDS of Indians in the process.) and land as governments, we would provide jobs for our people and our neighbors, we would be good neighbors sharing responsibility for services like fire and police and environmental protection, as well as supporting non-profits and public entities that contribute to the quality of life in our regions," said Daniel J. Tucker, Chairman of CNIGA. "This is our first report card, and I am proud of it. We have done well for our people, our neighbors, local and state governments and California taxpayers, as well as providing financial assistance for 71 other tribes to assist them in building a foundation for economic independence.”  OP: Some of these nations practice apartheid on their reservation.  See the right sidebar for a link to that issue.
 
"Our analysis shows that California tribal government gaming has a $7.5 billion annual impact and supports more than fifty-two thousand jobs for state residents," said Chris Thornberg, Founding Partner of Beacon Economics. "The benefits are broad-based and state-wide: including tribes and tribal members, non-tribal members, local economies and state and local government budgets. As today’s economy improves and discretionary spending rises, the magnitude of these effects can be expected to grow."   OP:  Tribes have stolen more than $500 MILLION from their own members and in some cases their own families.  Again, that story is on our sidebar.
 
Among the study’s key findings:
 
 Tribal gaming generates $7.5 billion for California’s Economy: In 2010 alone, $7.5 billion in economic activity was supported by Indian gaming operations. Of that amount, more than half ($3.9 billion) was generated outside of direct spending from the gaming operations. That means that businesses throughout California’s economy -- the vast majority of which are non-tribal -- are being buoyed by Tribal gaming.
 
 California tribal gaming creates more than fifty-two thousand jobs and $2.7 billion in income for Californians: The Beacon analysis concludes that tribal government gaming is an increasingly important pillar of job creation in California, supporting more than 52,000 good-paying jobs across the state and generating over $2.7 billion in income. The study estimates that upwards of 80% of casino employees are non-tribal members, and finds that many tribal gaming jobs are filled by lower-skilled workers, those hurt most by the economic downturn.
 
 Tribal gaming generates $467 million in revenues supporting essential local and state services: According to the study, tribal government gaming operations generate $467 million in state and local revenues, and non-gaming operations provide an additional $47 million in state and local revenues.
 
 Tribal government gaming has provided $818 million in critical support to non-gaming tribes: Revenue generated by tribal gaming provides essential support to non-gaming tribes, funding a range of services including education, health care, and housing. Non-gaming tribes receive up to $1.1 million annually from the Revenue Sharing Trust Fund. To date, the analysis shows that $818 million has been distributed to help reduce the reliance of non-gaming tribes on state and local governments.
 
 California gaming tribes foster safe and healthy communities, active philanthropic giving: Many California gaming tribes sponsor police and fire departments to relieve strained county officials and protect tribal and non-tribal community members, according to the report. Tribal gaming revenues also support local health and dental clinics for tribal and non-tribal residents in critical areas where these services are not readily available. The study also reports that gaming tribes often serve as the most important sources of philanthropic giving in their surrounding communities.a

But....if the State allowed casinos to non-tribal...they would get much more state tax since the tribes are Tax Exempt on the State level...same amount if not more jobs would be created as well and customers would be able to sue for harm while in the casinos.

and yet California is broke and cities are claiming Bankruptcy, huh, maybe the people don't see all that money they say the state is getting. Only a few hands see it. That's why Jerry Brown reran for Governor, he followed the money and put his hand out to keep his mouth shut. Why anybody would vote for a person who admitted that they lied to the people they represented is beyond comprehension except pure stupidity. I know, tax the rich, they have all the money. California has more people on some type of assistance than people who work for a living and pay taxes, but hey since they can work they should pay for those who can't or pretend that they can't, right? Isn't that the American way?

Smokeybear, before the crybaby starts complaiing we have to also say, what do the moratorium people get, nothing.

Nevermind that you, Smokeybear, were caught up in the moratorium too.

Point well taken. We never seem to mention the far reaching implications that this "Illegal Moritorium" has brought to bear on true "Lineal Decendants" that have been denied their right to be recognized as "Pechanga Indians." The overwelming evidence of "Birthright and Heritage," that is afforded the "Disenrolled and Banashed," also equates to the ones caught up in the "Moratorium."
