The U.S. national debt stands at an astronomical $15,783,460,095,998.99. Each
citizen’s share of this debt is roughly $50,000. 22 of our states have it right
in that they have legalized casino style gambling. If the remaining 28 states
were to do so as well, all the states would collectively earn an estimated $81
billion and annual tax revenues would be increased by $38.9 billion. If the USA
won this jackpot, the nation could hire 889,764 teachers and 777,000 police
officers. The country could really provide assistance to its students by
providing the student population with 85,263,158 laptops and 324,000,000
textbooks. With a struggling economy and a scarcity in jobs, such relief would
be phenomenal. The nation could even use the tax revenue to build 4,316.32 miles
Pennsylvania, Nevada, Indiana, New York and Louisiana are the top 5 states in the country for
casino tax revenue. These states have used the extra revenue for such purposes
as providing property tax relief, promoting economic development, bolstering
their tourism industries and improving education.
Is the US letting tax dollars that could be spent on education, law enforcement and
research go completely to waste? What do you think? Please share!
