one more thing for Chicago to corrupt with more over paid greedy union graft, more jobs for city hall insiders, one more source of money for a cash strapped city??

look let the city and soon the state go bankrupt already.

there isn't enough money in America to keep this bloated corrupt city state mess afloat.

the sooner the city state enter bankruptcy court the sooner tax payers can get relief from these outrageous greedy union retirement contracts the democrats promised to unions to buy union votes to keep them in office..........

After all, at least according to Nancy Pelosi, food stamps use is economic stimulus. A Chicago casino will be just one more way for Democrats to make the inner-city poor, even more poor and keep them voting Democrat. After all, who else besides Democrats thinks it's o.k. to pay for people's gambling addictions with taxpayer dollars? It's a perfect scheme... er... I mean plan Rahm has going.

I'm guessing it's getting harder to siphon off state money for 'other' expenses, a casino will certainly help.
