So then you say let it be broken....they Feds will step in and fix it......
Ya because they had the 50K american (and non american even) pros best interests in mind for black friday.
Let the lottery take over....trying to get it changed will be even more unlikely...we will then have a new enemy to add to the list.....States and Govs and Reps who's states are raking big profits......ya they will be all for a free market.....they wont let that go for anything.
Lottery is already an enemy, they won't get extra votes to oppose a federally regulated free market as a reward for creating a monopoly.
If no state creates a lottery ran monopoly it will be a good thing, we will get free market poker with no need to grease the federal palms, it just might take a little longer for the player pools to merge.
If any state does try to create a monopoly that would also be a good thing, as the federal government will need to break it up or risk having the courts do it for them, and the player pools will be merged sooner.
There is really no such thing as a bad state authorization bill, but a bloated federal bill which protects the market for the big casinos would be a complete disaster.
