Tornoe toon: Cash for Clunkers in Atlantic City


So Atlantic City passed their $200 million budget, but things look rough for the gambling mecca moving forward.

Here are some numbers from Michael Clark's Press of Atlantic City piece:

• The city has to defer more than $6 million in payments to the state's pension system, leaving a large hole that needs to be filled next year.

• The budget includes an $11 million increase in taxes

• The city had to raid their piggy bank to pay for the budget, depleting their surplus by $9 million, all the way down to $850,000.

But hey, at least the air show was cool.

Hi there exceptional website! Does running
a blog similar to this take a large amount of work?
I have virtually no expertise in computer programming however
I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyways, should

ask. Many thanks!
