200 bucks a year which probably has hidden legislation requirning it to be taxed as income. Great deal

The joke of it is in another article BASD looking to raise taxes yet again, so that $200 become ever more reduced already and it hasn't even been issued yet.

Can you sell me a Ford Pinto with that $200 rebate also? You accomplished what you wanted jobs for you and your friends in the legal business. Casino's will keep a few major law firms busy each year with about $2 million in billings per casino location.

Thanks Governor Swindell.

You could have just lowered the tax rate back to 2.8% and generated that much tax savings for everyone. This whole thing has become a complete joke.$200 bought us each a convict mafia member holding a casino licensce.

This state is so freaking corrupt it is unreal. Please, can we have another election real soon and votes some of these bums out.

Big bucks for the Mofia, zilch for the property owners. Whenever they talk about casinos, slot machines or anything else related to gambling, you can rest assured that it is run by corrupt and crooked individuals who will promise you anything until they get in and once they do, after that it is all prosperity for them and poverty for the rest. I wouldn't spend a nickel at any of these places. I am already a winner just by keeping my money in my pocket. As Will Rogers said, "If you want to double your money, pull a $20 bill out of your wallet, fold it in half and put it back in again." That's the best way to double your money in my opinion.

Stop voting for these people! I am willing to bet that many of you that are complaining now actually voted for these clowns. There is a lot of garbage in state and federal government in both parties that needs to be voted out. It's amazing how much the middle-class is plundered by the the upper and lower classes. Our money is forcefully taken and given to the other classes in this country and beyond to the rest of the world. This is not constitutional. It was never the intention of the Founding Fathers that the working class be subservient to the rest of the world. But we DO have a say. Don't vote for these clowns. THere ARE other choices out there.

$200 will about cover the cost of a decent shotgun i'll have to buy to control the hookers and drug dealers the casino is going to bring into the Southside. Smooth move...the politicans are swimming in casino slush funds and we are going to be left holding the bag....

Not me. I didn't vote for Fast Eddy. Even if I was a democrat, I would not vote for Mr. Cheeseteak. He was bad for Philly and I knew he would be bad for Pa. And guess what? He is the worst.

He is what you would scrape from the bottom of your shoe....

How did La Cosa Nostra Godfather Louis DeNaples get to be owner of the Mt.Airy Casino? I thought he was under Federal investigation. I know people from the Scranton Wilkes Barre area and people up there say nothing negative about Louis DeNaples.
Saying anything negative about Papa Lou would be tantamount to committing suicide by jumping into a ground floor store window and having your throat slit by a shard of glass.
