I’m not sure what is being gained by demonizing someone like Steve Wynn because of his wealth.

The idea that some people seem to be attacking the wealthy because of what they have been able to achieve is un-American.

Wynn came from a modest background and was able to build a business beyond what I bet he could have ever imagined when he was a kid.

He was able to do that because of his work ethic and the American free enterprise system that allowed someone who had an idea to make it work.

Our country needs to be championing people like him and entrepreneurs who sacrifice so much for the chance at the American dream.

Especially now, when thousands of Nevadans are still out of work and struggling to get by, we need to be helping job creators, not demonizing them for their success.
