u.s. house playing to the anti-gamlbing right-wing base

US moves to limit online gambling
Critics have attacked the proposals as an "outrageous" measure, claiming it aims to stir up the more conservative sectors of society ahead of the elections - and so boost the Republican party's chances.

phew! what a stinker! this bill marks as illegal u.s. banks and credit-card companies making payments to online gambling sites. it *doesn't* make gambling illegal. just paying your gambling debts! and this from a country where you can play government-sponsored lotteries in almost every state.

sounds like u.s. congress is trying to rile up conservatives on the eve of fall voting while they protect their own gambling profits - sheesh
