According to research compiled by the Morning Call in Allentown; Pennsylvania wins first prize in the amount of revenue collected from gambling taxes.
Okay, that’s Jim Dandy….what did we do with the $1.1 BILLION dollars collected from our 9 casinos in 2009? Did we make origami?
This money was supposed to help with property tax relief and a host of other things. Instead, we pretend we have $850,000,000.00 from the federal government in our 2010/2011 budget and our state unemployment compensation fund is bankrupt.
What the hell? Am I missing something here? That’s a HUGE chunk of money. What did we spend it on? Root beer floats and pork projects?
Inquiring minds would like to know!
