Taxpayers, beware of gambling greed

Success - Article sent! close

The recent article on the position taken by the Rivers Casino in Des Plaines to request "tax relief" if casino gambling in our area is expanded should alarm all taxpayers. It appears they have "got their oars in the water" even before the newly introduced bill to provide casinos in Chicago and Arlington Heights is filed. The amount of the current taxes paid by the Rivers Casino is a pittance compared with the amount it has taken from the casino patrons as the most profitable casino in Illinois!
