This morning Gov. Beshear added a “proposal” to the growing list of issues he wants the Kentucky general assembly to tackle this month in a special legislative session: Placing Video Lottery Terminals (VLTs) at race tracks.
Why? To save the horse industry? (Duplicity = Saying one thing but meaning another.) VLTs? – these are the gambling machines that used to sit in truck stops until Frankfort closed them down (“Without a cut, we shut you down!”).
Now Beshear wants them at the race tracks because it creates a new stream of tax revenues so Frankfort can continue to feed its ravenous appetite for MORE AND MORE AND MORE MONEY. Watch the Frankfort duplicity doctors spin this multiple ways, but in the end they want more of our money to waste on their pet projects.
