Why don’t they just raise the property and income taxes and institute a lottery?

They already raised income taxes (and sales taxes and vehicle taxes). And we already have a lottery.

The problem is not that the state doesn't have enough revenue. It is that they spend too much. Give them more money, they will just spend 110% of it and create another deficit. It's an addiction. The only way to cure it is to cut them off.
