Thanks, America! I’m Going To Vegas!

by Brad Warbiany

Now I know where to spend my stimulus!

In late-stage talks, Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., pressed for $8 billion to construct high-speed rail lines, quadrupling the amount in the bill that passed the Senate on Tuesday.

Reid’s office issued a statement noting that a proposed Los Angeles-to-Las Vegas rail might get a big chunk of the money.

I wonder how much the gaming industry paid lobbied for this one?
