Casio's are a great idea for construction workers and the commonwealths need to tax and spend. The Govenor wants us tax payers to foot the construction costs though taxation. And of course, casino's won't pay returns to the tax payers.

Let's get the casino's in here... bring more tax rev to state instead of the govenor's rediculous gas tax and his STUPID candy, soda, alcohol tax. This guys a moron. Maybe we should rid his wife of her 70K/yr assistant on Beacon Hill and her corner office as well. She has her own practice in Boston, why does she need an additional office at the state house??? And maybe he should have thought of the deficit when he wanted that pimped out caddy and the 12 helicopter rides to save himself from a 40 min commute.... What a loser this guy is... But, the citizen's of MA love to complain about politicians, so they keep voting in these imbeciles!!!

I'm not sure now that casinos would work. Attendance is way down. The die hards are still going, but people on the fringe are staying away at least until the economy rebounds. Foxwoods, Mohegan and Vegas are begging for people to go down now. Rooms at Foxwoods that were going for over $200/night are now just about half that. I hope they think this over and do a efficient feasability study before they start building these white elephants.
