The fall means one thing for sports fans in the Garden State: football is back! And with football comes tourism, both as fans travel to, from or through New Jersey. But it’s not just Giants, Jets and Scarlet Knights fans that are traveling on Game Day. New Jersey also sees an influx of tourism and revenue in Atlantic City related to sports betting.

The state Division of Gaming Enforcement released a report that revealed a total gaming revenue increase 13% in August 2019 compared to the same month last year with the total gaming revenue at $338.8 million. This August marked the 15th consecutive month of gaming revenue increases for casinos in Atlantic City.

In response, the President of the Casino Association of New Jersey Steve Callender said, “The summer of 2019 was the one of the best summers in recent years for Atlantic City. Casinos saw strong employment, visitation and gaming revenue. Two great back-to-back summer seasons continue to demonstrate that the casino industry’s ongoing investment in Atlantic City’s transformation into a first-class resort and business conference destination has staying power.”

With a nod to The Squad, Pallone and six other Democrats on his committee held a press conference in Washington on Tuesday in an effort to convince the world that 2050 is the point of no return from climate change, not 2030, as AOC insists.  Read the rest of this entry »

Where’s Pallone when we need him? 

Proposed Rebate Rule Hands a Hefty Payday to Big Pharma Paid for by Patients AND Taxpayers

By Rich Pezzullo

There is full -fledged crisis that is not on the border – it’s in our families and can no longer be ignored.  One in four Americans cannot afford their medication.

There is a controversial initiative being pushed in Washington called the Rebate Rule, which affects the ability of pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) such as Express Scripts, CVS Caremark and OptumRx to negotiate rebates with drug makers for Medicare recipients.
