Rolling the dice on the Pennsylvania budget

Thank god for gambling.

How else would Pennsylvania ever climb out of the sea of red ink it continues to wallow in every budget season. This year is no different.

How bad is it? Well the Powerball jackpot Saturday night is likely going to be in the neighborhood of $400 million. Nice neighborhood. If Gov. Wolf of the Pennsylvania Legislature happened to be holding a winning ticket, that would only leave them about $2.6 billion short of balancing the books.

Yeah, it's that bad.

And in Pennsylvania, that can only mean one thing.

More legalized gambling.
