Let me see if I have this straight, we are paying $4 Billion to put people with money on a train so they can go to Las Vegas and leave the money there in a shorter time than it takes now.
Am I missing something?

OK. Las Vegas is putting up the $4 Billion to get our people to the casinos faster than driving.

And I'm sure they'll make their money back in a timely fashion.
