Former admitted steroid abuser, body builder, actor and now California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed in a press conference today that the best way to raise money for the states foundering economy is to steal it.
Propositions 94, 95, 96 and 97 would enable the governor to take 30% of Native Americans gaming and casino winnings and give it to the state. Any Native American casino operator who refuses to hand over their money will be imprisoned.
"But now we will have more money for more prisons", the governor added.
Gamblers dropped over $6 billion on Californian Native American casinos last year. If the California bills pass, that would mean nearly $2 billion extra added to the California treasury.
"Those Indian guys are making lots of money. They will never miss a few billion dollars a year", the governor said. "The Mafia built a huge organization by doing business like this and they have been very successful."
In return for taking 30% of their gross revenue, the governor promised he would allow the tribes to build more slot machines, thus increasing revenue both for themselves and for the state. When questioned about the treaty between the United States government and Native American tribes the governor stated, "treaties are like the US Constitution. They don't mean anything!"
