Over the last few years the gaming industry in Indiana has been claiming it has problems showing a profit or breaking even, so in rides the boys in Indianapolis to attempt to right this trend!
Did they solve the problem facing Indiana's gaming industry? Apparently not. No sooner had the Indiana Legislature adjourned than Illinois announced a very extensive expansion of its gaming business with new facilities and new venues designed to attract customers who now go to Indiana and Wisconsin!
Indiana leaders' reactions are varied when inquiries are made on this subject. Gov. Mike Pence couldn't be reached for comment! House Speaker Brian Bosma brushed aside inquiry by stating he is comfortable with gaming taxes becoming a smaller piece of Indiana's revenue pie!
What is the answer to this industry which seems to be in a constant state of loss? Get out of the business, and give the taxpayers a break!
