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.
