Dear Editor:

Assemblyman Phillip Goldfeder is happing that legalized gambling will be coming to New York.

I wonder if the legislator realizes how many of his constituents will be throwing their money away and getting nothing in return? When these dummies can't pay their rent or their children's tuition, they will run to Zuccotti Park and blame the one percent (who own the dice) while they (the 99 percent) dance around to the beat of tom-toms and photo ops.

If Mr. Goldfeder and his cronies in Albany paid more for their pension and health benefits and cut down their spending appetites, they wouldn't need gambling to balance the budget.

You can be sure that if the mayor added another 25 cents to parking meter rates, the Rockaway Solon would scream bloody murder that Bloomberg was nickel-and-diming his poor constituents.

Who said there is a sucker born every minute...they're born every second.
