18. Why do we give special privileges to certified Native American tribes: e.g., the right to run casinos, sell cigarettes without collecting taxes, etc.
A. Because some Native American communities are poor, or have good lobbyists. Gambling creates jobs for some and great riches for some, while preying on others.
