The 'King of Bad Ideas,' Dean Skelos got miffed at Newsday's Spin Cycle for writing that he brought no ideas to the table to solve the current budget crisis. Spin Cycle printed an update with ideas that Dean has.
One of those ideas is to increase revenue from Video Lottery Terminals (VLT) at Aqueduct and Belmont.
Yes, at a time when many taxpayers are having a hard time paying rent, mortgages and buying staples like food and clothes, Dean wants them to increase their spending on gambling to close the budget gap.
Don't pay that mortgage bill, go out and hit the slots!
Great idea, Dean.
