Texas Hold-Em in Springfield

Phil Kadner has this column in the casino battle in Springfield.

But there is another force that Senator John Cullerton represents in this article -- the revulsion towards the payoffs to private gambling interests that want a piece of the action, like the horse racing industry.

These parasites want even MORE state money, just because they offer gambling now, and if there's a casino in Chicago, then they would presumably get less. So they want 15% of the proceeds sent to their private pockets, instead of to schools or hospitals or highways that benefit all of us.


Call your state senator and tell him/her that all the money from the casinos should stay with the public. Not one dime to private companies and wealthy gambling gurus. to find your senator. Call today.
