I'm sure Congress WILL take care of this. They, like the rest of our government, do things pretty much back wards, or, in other words - The opposite of what the majority of just us plain ol' tax paying people want.
-This ol' tax paying person would have never GIVEN them back anything. This ol' tax paying person would have legalized casino's in certain area's and used that money for - oh I don't know Public health care maybe.
This ol' tax payer would also never have spent so much money I did not have - but our government has lead the way to over charging, over spending and now sad to say probable bankruptcy.
So yeah maybe the land will be better in someone else's hands - but hey mine are open.
