Gov, Jones push casino plan that would help CTA :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Politics

It seems like this casino thing is becoming the quick fix for any budgetary problems these days.  I was thinking, why not take it a step further – instead of opening a casino to fund the CTA, why not just turn the CTA into a casino?  Minimum bet $2.00 – every pull is a winner (the minimum payout is a one-ride ticket).

 

Just think of the synergies!

  • More people will ride to try to win.
  • More money will flow into the system to fund improvements.
  • CTA can open riverboats.

    What scares me… that idea just might work!
     
    Actually, I like stuff like the lottery and casinos–the way I look at it, it\’s other people voluntarily funding the government, not me 😉

    Can we ever get past the idea that the government should be monopolizing the gambling industry?
    It\’s pathetic that we allow the government to license this activity..
