Cut casinos loose to fend for themselves

September 20, 2014

Do Indiana legislators have any kind of collective vision and perspective [Sept. 15]? At a time when general revenues are falling because the state depends on sales tax for a large portion of its revenues and sales are stagnant, the legislators want to consider helping the casinos, which produce nothing other than a transfer of wealth.

If anything, the legislators should focus on helping the other sectors of the state economy. Let the casinos operate in the free market, which is what the Republican legislators usually promote for everyone else (people and businesses) in the state.
