Casinos were indefinitely closed in Atlantic City today, until politicians can decide how to fill a $4.5 billion budget deficit. Basically thousands of people are going to be out of work and many small businesses will suffer. Of course, the casinos are estimating a daily loss of around $20 million and the state loses around $1.3 million in lost taxes per day!!!
What better way to solve a budget deficit? Just close down the town and drive the tourists out!
