Follow The Money Trail – Pennsylvania Beats Nevada For Gambling Tax Profits

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!
