Expansion......ignoring the social compact

Massachusetts ‘GAMING’ Future

Maybe that’s because these legislators/critics are receiving a ten million dollars a year hosting fee for having a casino in their district.
Philadelphia Inquirer - November 8, 2014 - Critics say another Phila. casino could harm existing ones
Concerned legislators from Bucks, Delaware and Montgomery Counties said Friday that a second Philadelphia casino could drain customers, revenues, and maybe jobs from existing gaming sites in the region.
"Too much of a good thing is a bad idea," said State Rep. Thaddeus Kirkland, a Democrat whose district includes Harrah's Philadelphia in Chester.
