Robin Hood Regulating Gaming:
The Illinois Supreme Court ruled that it is legal for the state to collect a surcharge from the profitable casino industry and give that money to the unprofitable horse racing industry.
Ronald Reagan once said "Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it."
Horse racing stopped moving a long time ago. How telling is this form of economic populism occurring in Obama's home state?
