GIGM- Frank to Introduce Internet Gambling Bill

From an email I received:

This is an email from 'GamingIntelligenceGroup.com' Message: Frank to Introduce US Online Gambling Bill Tomorrow According to Reuters News Service, House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank will introduce a bill this week to lift a ban on online gambling. "Why anyone thinks it is any of my business why some adult wants to gamble is absolutely beyond me," Frank told a community bankers group conference. Frank, a Massachusetts Democrat, said he will introduce the legislation on Thursday. Internet gambling in the United States was effectively banned last October when President George W. Bush signed legislation outlawing gaming financial transactions. www.GamingIntelligenceGroup.com

I realy feel for the gamblers in the US. I cant beleive your Congress banned all banks and credit card companies from accepting transactions from online gambling sites which makes you unable to play online poker. What a bunch of hypocrites your state government are. They have the largest gambling operations with lotto, keno, etc. If they truly believed their rhetoric about internet gambling they would cut out the state operations also. And now they are bringing in a law to legalise slot machines. Personally I would have a big grudge against any party that stopped me from playing on a online poker site. I think there must be some way for you guys to get around this problem. Must make you wonder if you are living in the land of the free when it seems the government has full control on what it will and wont let you do.
