Quicker is Better – Senate slow-down makes no sense

April 21, 2010

The Senate has decided to hold up or to slow down the expanded gambling bill approved by the House last week.

This is a shame and a waste and the slowdown effects Revere in a big way.

We have two major facilities dependent upon expanded gambling.

Hundreds of jobs and potentially millions in tax revenues and benefits are at risk when the senate calls for a slowdown of something the House just agreed upon.

If only we could take the politics out of important economic issues and let them rise or fall on their merits then government might not be so disrespected as it is today.

The Senate needs to act quickly and decisively.

The Senate must show its hand – if it has one.

Nothing is worse at this time than inertia.
