BREAKING NEWS: A federal appeals court rules 2-1 that subsidies that helped people buy insurance at healthcare.gov are illegal.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday threw out a federal regulation that implements key subsidies that are vital to President Barack Obama's healthcare overhaul. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit accepted one of the main legal challenges to the policy by conservatives opposed to an expansion of the federal government.

Report: Effort continues to stop tribes from adding casinos in Wisconsin

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - There’s been a recent effort to stop Wisconsin’s Indian tribes from adding more casinos.

The Appleton Post-Crescent says a group called “Enough Already Wisconsin” is making its voice heard, especially after learning that the state’s 20-plus casinos have seen their revenues drop.

A recent report said Wisconsin’s gaming houses had a 5 percent decline from 2007 through 2011.

Brian Nemoir, head of “Enough Already Wisconsin,” believes the gambling market is saturated – but the Menominee tribe disagrees.

Tribal vice-chair Lisa Waukau said the revenue decline was due to the economy, and her group’s still pushing a Kenosha casino because it believes things will get better.

Several tribes have proposals for off-reservation casinos. A federal decision is expected soon on whether the Menominee can build a casino-resort at the former Dairyland Greyhound Park.

If Washington okays it, Governor Scott Walker would have the final say. And he recently said all 11 state tribes would have to give their blessings before he approves any new casino.

That was great news for the Potawatomi, which has fought for years against a Kenosha casino. That’s because it could siphon millions from the Potawatomi Casino in Milwaukee, which is the only gaming house in the state’s most populated area.
