    A voluntary tax is not a generation of revenue.

    Wow the State of Maryland is averaging over 100 Million in revenue from the Casinos. Yet we still have high taxes, and our teachers still have to buy their own supplies. Somebody in this state is getting very, very rich off of this. Wake up and make sure that this income is being used the right way for the right things.

    In short…a lot of fools are GIVING their money to P-R-I-V-A-T-E-L-Y O-W-N-E-D casinos. Oh, and the state gets a sliver of that money. If it was any more than that, the amount would be published in the story.
