US Government estimates Social Security will be going broke.....?

around 2020 or thereabouts, so why doesn't the government go into the business of government run "Casino's" to supplement such programs as Social Security, health care and medicaid.

It would not be illegal, nor would it affect anyone who sees gambling as immoral for they would not have to go to such places just as they do with private owned or Indian reservation owned Casino's. Does anyone see how government and the people of the US would benefit by such an action?
Update: Most of you think my idea of government owned Casino's to fund projects like Social Security is a bad idea, but think on this. LIFESPANS are on the increase and MOST individuals are making MORE from Social Security in their lifetimes than they CONTRIBUTED.

LIFESPANS are on the increase and MOST individuals are making MORE from Social Security in their lifetimes than they CONTRIBUTED. This includes all the costs in Medicare spending attributed to medically treat the elderly. Some say on here that going broke is a fallacy created by the government but in reality it is NOT. If ILLEGAL activity is going to occur in society REGARDLESS of what you or I "think" why not let it PAY for the care of those who need it and lessen the burden on taxpayers.
