Another democrat that does not get it! Is gambling a Government problem? Should Government really fund a program to help gamblers? Good grief, how did this guy get elected?

These are the kind of programs we cannot afford. I consider these kind of programs a waste of money. No way to measure results. Advertising companies, printers and consultants will benefit the most. Use the millions for more deserving programs like infrastructure, veterans benefits, or a nation-wide comprehensive transportation system.
