Gaye Deen’s letter in Sunday’s Sun, “Gaming can afford to pay more,” misses the mark.

Steve Wynn and Sheldon Adelson’s personal contributions are just that: personal.

Most of their recent profits are from their international operations and not from here on the Strip.

Has anyone noticed the Echelon or Fontainebleau skeletons on Las Vegas Boulevard or Mr. Adelson’s wrap covering an unfinished tower at the Palazzo?

Let’s not kill gaming, the golden goose that built this city.

Let’s instead look at our elected leaders who are looking for higher taxes while the Clark County School District donates $5 million in taxpayer money to the Smith Center and the RTC spends $50 million more than necessary for local bus service.

Fiscal responsibility needs to focus first on a budget and spending before the well goes dry.
