Anywhere there is an idiot with some money in their pocket, we should put a slot machine. Slot machines are like money vacuums. We need to get that spending money out of circulation and into the hands of casino promoters. Of course, taxpayers will get a few pennies on the dollar, but maybe that could be given to subsidize natural gas fracking. I've always felt that Ohioans had too much money, and casinos EVERYWHERE is the obvious solution.

This tell's me that Rob Walgate and the Ohio Roundtable are anti-Ohio. Our state is 8 billion in the hole and they want to stop jobs and let a billion dollars a year continue to leave Ohio for bordering state's? People are starving and standing in food line's when now we have a chance to open up thousand's of job's. Anyone that would want to stop that has got to be sick. If they sue it will just reverse the problem and make it worse as racetracks close and we lose more job's. Maybe the Ohio Roundtable is receiving fund's from neighboring states' casino's, I dont know but it dosent make any sense. I have family that want's to apply for some of these job's because there is nothing out there right now and it would help free up other job's that relate. Good grief.

Having slots at race tracks will not create very many jobs. If our Gov had left things alone the jobs that the casinos are going to create would still have been there. I, like many other Ohioans, don't believe that it is the people of Ohio that got the better deal with the deal Kasich worked with the casino people. Short term sounds good, long term, not so good. We should thank Rob Walgate and the Ohio roundtable for looking out for our rights. The constitution is there to be followed always, not just when you want to.

Let's waste more taxpayer money on challenging this. Let's see how many more people these bleeding heart F.u.c.k.e.r.s can help us lose. If people don't want to gamble, that's fine. But i don't believe you speak for all of ohio's people. let it alone, so the people can decide for themselves if they want to waste their money.

You need to be protected from yourself. After you gamble away all your money, you'll expect the Gubmint to bail you out with welfare. We can't afford to subsidize all the fools like you who will waste their resources and then plead poverty in old age. There are so many dumb people like you that need to be protected from themselves for the benefit of all of us.

I think everyone needs to take a good hard look at the people who are already invested in horse business. My family depends on those tracks staying open, that is our bread and butter. Without the VLT's are tracks ar at serious risks of closing up and yet we have another empty building wasting space. Lets not only keep the jobs we have but we could also add many more. Its time for a change Ohio either come with us or starve!!

There are all kinds of jobs related to racetracks that will boom from the racetracks opening. If you have been following Ohio news you would have read where we actually had a better deal with the racino's under Strickland. He was our last gov. Rob Walgate's suit will eliminate new job's that our state badly needs and if your an Ohioan you cant argue with that. How do you know what's good for Ohio, your from Tyler, Texas. You take care of Texas and we will take care of Ohio.

I don't go to horse tracks but I am in favor of doing what needs to be done to keep people working in Ohio and to make Ohio prosperous once again. If slots are brought into the state in this manner they will be allowed everywhere and there will be no need for someone to go to the horse track to play them. Places of business that are denied the right to put in slots will be sueing the state saying horse tracks are being given preferential treatment by the Goveners office. The constitution has been circumvented on this issue. Vlt's or slots need to go back to the voters to decide if and how they are going to be brought into Ohio. Slots are machines and do not create a lot of new jobs, Just debt for the players and cash for big business.

I'm from Columbus Ohio. I have tried to change that Tyler Texas thing without success. Don't know where it came from.

Ohio has spoken regarding gambling. Garnering a little support from Second Harvest by hinting they could get a little of the gambling money doesn't fool most of us. How desperate and short-sighted and greedy, to boot! Ohio is in a financial fix but opening Casinos and taking money from our schools, police and firefighters isn't the way to fix it. Kasich has opened the door to bigger problems for Ohio while he helps himself in his "business" dealings. Kasich ignores the people of Ohio.
