No surprise from the current Administration. Just think, $4.2 million, that should cover the National debt for, what, about 65 seconds? And the bonus being anti-gambling ads from Microsoft (how many kids will this reach?) for three years! Proud to be an American? I think not.

Actually, this was covered in Casinomeister's News in January. But I had forgotten about it, and the ATE reported on it today. First day back from vacation and I'm in a time warp :D
