U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren told a Boston Herald reporter yesterday that she will vote to repeal the law allowing state government to promote and partner with casino corporations:
“I come to the question of gambling from a background in bankruptcy and what happens economically to families. It’s a tough call here. People need jobs, but gambling can be a real problem economically for a lot of people. I didn’t support gambling the first time around and I don’t expect to support it (now).”
Any person from any place along the political spectrum who is serious about addressing the unfairness and inequality in Massachusetts and our country has to include taking casino (and lottery) corporations out of government on their agenda. Sen. Warren is doing her part.
