And you think your state is a mess...

Government shutdown will cost New Jersey millions a day in pure filthy lucre.

The regulation of gambling is a huge cash cow for states, and New Jersey is going to give up pure revenue because the state bureaucracy is all-encompassing for the casino industry. As a result, during the peak of the year for the industry, casinos shut down, New Jersey loses millions of dollars of mostly out-of-state tourism revenue, and New Jersey continues to add to its reputation as the greasy, overweight, mesh-shirt-wearing armpit of America.
