Going away present

by Lee Watkinson |  Published: Nov 13, '08


The current lame duck administration dosen't feel like they have done enough for our country. So as a going away present they are passing regulations making the Unlawful Internet Gamming Enforcement Act finalized, along with about 60 other regulations including many to take away peoples rights(beyond playing internet poker), consumer and environmental protections.

Fortunately it looks like Obama and the democratic congress will be able to repeal these regulations, if they are so motivated. So if we all phone our congressman and email Obama, that might help motivate them and make sure poker is one of the things they work to save.
