Which is exactly why Natives need to sort out the mess with the casino's and help distribute the wealth among the tribes. They have a unique
situation and if handled well those struggling could benefit substantially, instead of waiting for Government to bail them out.
I know of the extreme poverty many live in today. I feel those receiving the benefits from the Casino deal should also aid those that are not. As with
all those that attain wealth, greed and power becomes a major factor.
Native Americans are not above this.
Keep in mind, there are plenty of suffering people in America that aren't in tribes.
The issue of poverty here in the States was well addressed by Edwards, yet I doubt any of the current runners for the White House, or past presidents,
have done enough to help ALL struggling brothers and sisters here in the States.
This problem is not unique to Obama.
The Natives (and everyone else in poverty) should feel the same about McCain and Bush.
