But the Institute for American Values believes otherwise. The New York city-based non-partisan think-tank has released THREE reports warning that casinos will ultimately be bad for the state. David Blakenhorn authored "A Casino Land Report." He says Cuomo is proposing regressive public policy. Paul Davies wrote another such report, "Stacked Deck," which labels New York's casino plan as "dishonest." Davies contends the plan is all about politics – not policy. Barbara Whitehead prepared the report "Why Casinos Matter." She challenges New York to take a stand to protect citizens against the harm of casino gambling.
