    A YES VOTE would prohibit casinos, any gaming establishment with slot machines, and wagering on simulcast greyhound races.

    A NO VOTE would make no change in the current laws regarding gaming.

    This state is already so corrupt and will just get worse with casino's. Also many gamblers are welfare people who will then find other ways for state to help them after they lose their money gambling. And from what we are seeing in A.C gambling is on the decline.
    Voting for Baker, 1st cause he is a Republican and 2nd he lives right near me

    People who want to gamble will just drive to CT to do it. I'd rather have MA get the tax income and jobs that a "quality" casino would supply.

    Probably 90% of our state Reps and Senators are Democrats so at least putting a Republican in as Governor can keep them from going full liberal here

    I've been so busy at work the past few months I haven't had time to make political rants on FB let alone keep up with who's running on what.

    I was for the casinos, but since I saw how fucked up and corrupt it was the way it went down on the Boston decision I changed my mind. The gaming commission will wind up with hundreds of no show jobs for shitbag politicians relatives and friends and this whole thing just seems like it will become a fucked up mess tax payers will have to clean up. It should have gone to the Indians in the first place.

    Gambling in AC is on the decline because of the CT casinos, and also because AC sucks and you have to pay for parking everywhere. If you want people to drive down to your shitty city to gamble, don't penalize them for driving to your city to gamble.

    That said, I have zero confidence that any MA casino would be someplace I want to be. A lot of crooked people will pocket a lot of money, and then the surrounding towns will be stuck with increased costs for crime and traffic. The CT casinos are convenient enough. I'm glad they're close, but I'm also glad they're a little far.

    No - higher gas tax, less people on the road. If they end up spending some of that money to repair roads, Bonus.
    No - The argument on against won me over. There are better ways to encourage recycling.
    No - I dont necessarily want to see a casino near Boston, the real estate is too valuable for that. And it's already tough enough as is trying to get through Boston without the added traffic. Would not mind seeing it out in Western Mass.
    No - Too tough on small business. Too generic of a bill. different industries have different needs from their employees.
    Oh Yeah!

    Too tough on small businesses? My stance on it is that if 40 hours of paid time off per employee bankrupts your business, you're running your business wrong.
