The reality is gambling supplies funds for politicians to spend as they see fit.

The politicians appropriated funds from IL. Casinos specifically for IL horse tracks.

 depositing millions of dollars into our account THE HORSE RACING EQUITY TRUST FUND.

Our politicians justified taking this money from the highest grossing casinos to offset the damage they caused on IL agribusiness & horse racing 

Like most trust funds it was set up to help insure the future, the future of horse racing & breeding in IL.

Well the future is now, with the breeding industry dead or dying, racing has been treading water now for over a decade.

 waiting on yet another gift from our politicians to grant us slots so we may not only just survive but might actually thrive

So isn't it wonderful that our politicians had the foresight to establish this horse racing fund to help us through these the tough times?

Hey not so fast! sure they took the money but never really intended to give it to the industry it was supposedly earmarked to help

by writing the law in a way that only releases those funds if & when they choose too.

Guess what, our greedy politicians have no intention of releasing that money, our money and are now drooling all over themselves eying those millions

 to help the greater needs of the state like education, the deficit etc. by just throwing our trust fund into the general fund that same black hole that gobbled up all that lottery money

that was promised way back then to solve IL. education problems. We all know how well that worked.

Just how can they get their money grubbing mitts on our cash, lets see they will make us a deal.

If they give us slots surely we will be happy and go away but a pesky governor is slowing that solution.

They know we need that money the industry is hurting so how can they make us go along?

Well just inflict more pain, so let ADW lapse turning their backs on a revenue stream because they can wait us out.

If IL can keep on keeping on with a 90 billion deficit what's a few hundred million to forego to make a desperate profit driven industry more desperate?

So with a foot on our throat & a gun to our head lets make a deal. They say we have to move slow on expanded gambling to keep out the mob

With four of our last seven governors serving time in prison, the largest state government of any other state in the union along with the highest deficit in history of state government

 I for one would take our chances with the mob if there even is such a thing. at least there's honor among thieves.

There's no honor in Springfield only greed, no wonder every time you see a picture of a politician they have a big smile on their face.

For them life is good.
