Online Gambling Bill Passes

from the step-away-from-the-online-casino dept

The House has passed an online gambling bill that very few people seem to like. The goal of the bill is to try to shut down offshore casinos, and prevent people in the US from using them. There is, of course, the big question of why the government should be preventing people from doing what they want to do with their own money. There’s also the question about why they’re trying to shut down sites that are not hosted in this country. Finally, there are people who are involved in what is currently “legal” gambling, who are afraid that the law also applies to them, and will cause them all sorts of problems. I’m wondering, after all this, how the bill actually passed?
