It's YOUR side of the Commonwealth's politicians that are to blame! The casino was willing to build it tax free for a license but Rendell and his east side cronies had a back door deal to award the license somewhere else. Why you ask? Nobody could find a VALID reason, which leads me to believe someone was lining their pockets instead.

So when the Flyers fan base wants to cry about where their tax money is going, just keep voting in the east side Democrats... It's obviously working well in the fifth most corrupt state in the country. ;)
