This is a had one too look at. I do get your point where Reid used his influence to get special treatment for a rules change. With out the rules change those big money investors would have been locked out. I would bet those big money investors are all from China though the story did not identify. One of China's finance ministers said " we have suit cases full of cash and are ready to spend" so it looks like China will be getting in the casino business.

But with out the rules change that money would have been locked out and no economic benefit or job creation for Vegas.

So we're willing to put job creation ahead of ethics and laws, right?

If it will advance the liberal agenda it doesn't matter how unethical, immoral or illegal it is.

Wanna bet that some of that money is coming from Mexican drug cartel profits?

I am not sure any of those claims hold water, Reid used his political influence to get a rules change and speed up some visas. Let see, on one hand you have 300 million in investment money which is good for Vegas and on the other you have a rule.

Democrats and liberals....this is what you hate about and accuse Republicans of doing, right?

So when can we expect you to chime in with your scorn for HR?

Do I understand you correctly? You advocating for the things that liberals and Democrats hate about "big money, big business" Republicans?

Clarify for us so we we can understand the full scope of your opinion of this. Surely you're not being hypocritical, right?

It's a double standard. If "their guy" does it, it's okay.

There's a double standard with regard to this president as well.
