The casinos vote shows that the state government is all about the money. I believe that "Smitty" PIGnatelli & Ben Downing are right to stand up against casino gambling in Massachusetts. All gambling is inequitable. It takes money from the poor and redistributes it to the rich. The lottery is a scam. And casino gambling is a bigger scam!

The alternative for Tax and Spend Democrats like Pignatelli and Downing who are longtime buddies is raising taxes. Time to get new Legislators.
