        Well, don't hold your breath. It'll take probably a year for implementing.

        So, keep your eyes open and hope for the change.

        Folks, keep in mind this is a LONG, LONG way from being enacted.  Also, why do we gamblers want this?  It just means the government will tax us and know more about our business.  Unless the DOJ does a vicious change in their policies of enforcement, there is nothing to worry about.  I would rather deal with a well run casino based in Britian or Panama than deal with the red tape of one U.S. government approved here.

        Too funny!!!  It actually makes no difference to me, I pretty much play the same as I did before the UIGEA passed in Sept 2006. 
        I hate the fees involved to deposit / withdrawl.  I REALLY miss my Neteller and PrePaid ATM (not sure if they are even around anymore) accounts!!!!! 

        P.S.  I found where you register at!! hehe

        That's what I have been saying right along doc.  But I guess everyone has their own agenda.  A lot of people cannot gamble because of their jurisdiction; or they are worried about not receiving their money if they win, etc.  I think they should just stay out of the crappy casinos, play the accredited ones, and leave US government out of it.. I won't be able to gamble at all if the bill passes, so I can't get excited about this at all.

        Nal.....exactly.  If the government gets involved it will be red tape without end!  Plus, one is very hard pressed to find anyone the government has messed with for simply gambling.  Yes, they go after the casino owners from time to time, but do a Google search and finding actual gamblers who get in trouble with the law is very, very rare or nonexistent.

        Well for me I hope it passes.  We need some money here in the U.S.  The casinos that are out of the country are sometimes (well I wish I could get a boat and pay them a visit) but to each his/her own, I think it will help with healthcare and the bottom line is Bush was in violation of the UN Treaty, President Obama doesnt want that, I support President Obama's willingness to make this happen, cause he is the CAPTAIN!

        Keep some things in mind.  Currently, no PLAYERS of online gaming are being bothered by the U.S. government.  People who set up illegal online casinos in the U.S.,  YES.  Players no. 

        So, why INVITE the government to have a hand in my onling casino playing?  Will they run/regulate online casinos with the same measure of "success" as the Post Office, the State of California, the IRS?  Do you really want to be on record that you are a "gambler?"  Who wants that on a government data base somewhere?

        Insofar as this being a tax revenue source.  Ha!  With Obama racking up trillions in debt the tiny, tiny bit gleaned from online players wouldn't make any difference.

        Do I want to be indentifyed as a "gambler" I have been called worst names.  I just want the bill to pass! It will, and regulation here we come, I see jobs, and other positive things, the negative will not surpass the positive.  The government is already in my business, this way they know a little more and if they want to contribute, the door is open!

        Case in point:  If the Government cannot get a Flu Shot Program right, how can it successfully regulate online gaming?

        Well gee wiz, flu shot, honestly I wouldnt take one if they brought to the door and paid me.  But I think and hope the bill will pass, the way I feel about these online casinos, I would rather have them right here so I wont have to go far when they cheat me and pay them a personal visit!
