If I Were Bruce I Wouldn’t Play Revels

Because it was financed with money stolen from the taxpayers!


From yesterday’s APP:

Gov urges Springsteen to play at new casino


Gov. Chris Christie plans to see Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band Thursday at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center — his 127th time at a Boss show, Christie said — but this visit may mix business with pleasure.

Christie said he wants Springsteen to book an added date on his current world tour. He wants Springsteen and the band to play in Atlantic City on Labor Day weekend at the 5,000-seat arena at the new Revel casino.

Christie made the remark Tuesday after a walkthrough of the Revel, a $2.4 billion project that is being geared up for a grand opening in May.

The Republican governor conceded that he and Springsteen, a poet for the working class, “obviously have different points of views on certain areas of politics.” But he said it would be appropriate for Springsteen to show support for the Revel project, which is generating a projected 2,600 construction jobs and 5,000 permanent jobs after investors took advantage of a tax break advanced by the Christie administration.

“I think Bruce, if he’s true to his lyrics, would love the fact that the state used taxpayer funds to invest in this building to create jobs for working men and women,” Christie said. A Bruce show in Atlantic City would be “a show of support for his home state,” Christie said.


Support for a big-government tax and spend boondoggle, that is.
