    Default

    Some key elements from the news story:

    ================================================== =======
    The agreement, a blend of earlier measures passed by the House and Senate, would make it illegal for banks and credit card companies to make payments to online gambling sites.

    The bill would leave out an additional provision of the House bill that would have clarified that a 1961 federal law banning interstate telephone betting also covers an array of online gambling.
    ================================================== =======

    From 2nd paragraph, this may very well insinuate that what WE DO will not be effected per se. However, making it harder to gamble on-line by taking away credit card access, could significantly reduce revenue. Further, given all the hoopla with the Sport Betting industry of late, it wouldn't surprise me if some vendors drop USA customers altogether. Anyone who votes for any of these Republican religious right hypocrites, really should seek psychiatric counsel, IMO.
