Gaming machines in establishments

I feel that Virginia is not supporting small businesses and other establishments that have games of chance. These machines earn money, not only for the establishments they are in but also earn money for the state that allows Virginia to keep taxes lower and not place a burden on people who are already hurting for money due to high prices on groceries and other things needed just to live. Giving into the wants of big gambling establishments who dislike these games because they are not getting any proceeds kills the small business owners who have them, and gain business from them. People will still visit the large establishments with these small machines in place. Don't make a mistake by removing them because big business is greedy.
