Casino owner Steve Wynn calls out President Obama's "pure socialists" talk

steve-wynn-getty.jpgCasino magnate Steve Wynn recently had some strong words for President Obama when speaking to the press in Las Vegas, reports CNN.

"I'm saying it bluntly, that this administration is the greatest wet blanket to business, and progress and job creation in my lifetime," says Wynn. "The guy [President Obama] keeps making speeches about redistribution, and maybe we ought to do something to businesses that don't invest or hold too much money. We haven't heard that kind of talk except from pure socialists."

He adds that he supports both Democrats and Republicans, but he is afraid to add the nearly 10,000 jobs he could add at his casino in the current political environment in the United States.

"The business community in this country is frightened to death of the weird political philosophy of the president of the United States," says Wynn. "Until he's gone, everybody's going to be sitting on their thumbs."
