Do you think it is time for a lottery in this state?

The mining industry says no to taxes. Companies will eliminate jobs if we dare to raise taxes on all the money they make.

Casino profits are up, but gaming companies say no to more taxes on them. They would not be able to expand overseas as much.

The governor also says no to more taxes.

The lottery money could go to the education system. Make that 100 percent and I am sure that the casinos will even sell the tickets. (Maybe not if they can’t make big money on it.)
