Unfortunately insane self-serving democRats have ruined the state of Illinois and everywhere else they've infested. I guess when they wake up one day and all their neighborhoods resemble soviet eastern blocs they'll realize what they've done to America.

How much money do these politicians think we have in our pockets to GAMBLE away?

Illinois already has a 5% INCOME TAX.

Then there's almost 10% sales tax (state/local).

Illinois gas is selling for $4.20/ga!!(today)

They ALREADY EXPANDED gambling a few years back.

And now they want MORE GAMBLING, with Rahm saying it's for the children's education.

Well, if one doesn't want to gamble, one doesn't need to do it.

Unfortunately there are those who SHOULDN'T gamble (like spending the rent money). And legalized gambling can HURT a lot of residents.
