This is what you get when you elect Republicans. Gays can't be married. Guns everywhere. Coingate. Corrupt Taft the worst governor ever. Ohio's economy in the tank. Less funding for education. Gambling proceeds going to Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Michigan, New York, Illinois, but not Ohio. How stupid can this states voters be?

You forgot to mention myohionow gives 30% in taxes to 88 counties by per capita, Cuyahoga County get $15 million ayear, lake $7 million and Franklin County $12 million, to use for anything they want! ( schools, seniors, Medicaid, lower property taxes, highways) Morally, its not near schools or churches its in the middle of nowhere, in southern ohio . As of Nov 07 in the Columbus Dispatch, the State has a budget shortfall of $118 million, of that $50. Million is Medicaid, we lost 11,500 jobs last year in the state, tax revenues are down. That's when casinos make sense. They passes in other States when there was a budget shortfall, because no one wants to raise taxes. My Friend works for a Bridge engineering firm in Cleveland, the State, O-dot just canceled $30 million in work. Which included the new inter belt work in Cleveland, there goes more jobs. Strickland just canceled dental for Medicaid hospital patience's, and 3% increase in Medicaid payments, how long can he just keep cutting services. Now Charles Ramafrom Beulah park track in Columbus wants to put a another issue on the ballot
in Nov 08 ,to stop Myohionow,com.(its 50 miles from his track and 20 miles from riverside downs in Cinni, This is a good thing, because he must match the 30% tax going back to the 88 counties, along with $15 million licence fee per track.

Ohio is stupid to let all that revenue go to another state. Wait until the one in New Castle opens, even more Ohioans spending money in another state.

We need a casino,now $207 million medicaid shortfall in ohio

Strickland: Ohio Medicaid faces $207 million shortfall



The Strickland administration released new estimates on Dec. 21 showing the state faces a $207 million Medicaid shortfall by the end of the current budget biennium. (Source: Gongwer Report, Dec. 21, 2007.) The deficit is caused by more Ohioans signing up for Medicaid than originally expected. The $207 million figure is based on state funds only; if the 60%/40% federal-state match is taken into account, the deficit would total around $550 million all funds. A small part of the projected shortfall results from the administration revising downward the amount that can be saved through cost-savings initiatives in the Medicaid program.
In November, Ohio's Medicaid caseload exceeded the administration’s projections by 25,644 individuals, causing Strickland to indefinitely postpone the implementation of adult dental benefits, rate increases for health care providers, and, more recently, to require prior authorization for psychiatric drugs.

The religious freaks in Ohio are burying the state economy. All in the name of banning gays from marrying, keeping strippers from lap dancing, and keeping gamblers from gambling. Nothing like trying to push their morality on the rest of us.

No One wants taxes to go up, but with $780 Million to 1.9 billion budget shortfall in Ohio and a loss of 13800 jobs in 2007 in the state. Of that budget, 1/3 is Medicaid shortfall and O-dot road improvements. Baby boomer are getting older and need more care. Just cutting spending isn't going to help. A Professor at UNLV said, in a report, that the states around Ohio got Casinos or slots when they were facing a budget short fall. And Ohio will not do casinos until, like other states is forced to do so. No Governor will raise Taxes and Taft put Stirckland in this spot by cutting taxes before he left office.

Aren't you the one that is the morality guy?? I guess it's different because you have gay, stripper friends who love to gamble.

As soon as gambling is proposed everyone bitches about "well there might be problem gamblers". I happen to think this is one of those deals where you look out for number one. It's not my problem that other people get addicted to it. Just like smokers are stupid enough to pay $1.25/pack in sin tax, problem gamblers will have no problem living from paycheck to paycheck while diggin the state out. I have no problem explotiing it,
