Online Casino Rescues U.S. Economy?

Maybe so. Look if everyone would just step back a minute and look at the realities of the situation, there might be winnings available for all.
Take a peek at what's going on right now. The U.S. Government owes a lot of debt. The U.S. economy is slowly, actually very slowly starting to sputter to life. There are lot of people in the U.S. that are still hunting for a new job after being downsized after the great recession of 2008. Yet, even with all of that, no one seems to be pointing out the obvious solution.
Can it be that the politicians don't want to upset some of their constituents? Or is there some other reason that there is now a groundswell of support to legalize online gambling throughout the U.S.?
Yes, it is true that the ice is slowly starting to melt for online casinos. Even now, the states of New Jersey, Delaware and Nevada (of course) have forms of online gambling that have come online for residents within their borders.
Yet, this is the time for someone to stand up and take charge. Some progressive leader needs to point out the obvious fact that most Americans seem to support at least some form of online gambling. If you have any doubts about this, just take a look at how popular lotteries are in the states that allow lotteries, especially the states that pool their winnings and offer massive jackpots.
Why should the United States go ahead and legalize online gambling throughout the entire country? Consider the real world case of the state of Delaware. If you recall, Delaware just recently legalized online gambling within their borders. Although its still too early to tell the exact numbers, there are 2,000 new jobs expected from this move. Wait, it gets even better. The bean counters back in the capital of Delaware are projecting just under $8M per year in new tax revenue. And of course, that's not counting all the new revenue that Delaware will pull in from payroll taxes on these new employees, the local effect that these new employees will have on their local economy and much more.
You see, the point is obvious. All you have to do is connect the dots. The majority of U.S. residents support some form of online gambling. The U.S. economony needs more tax revenues and out of work people want jobs.
