    So how did that hope and change work out?

    My article has never proven more true.

    Sadly, it didn't.

    Do you believe if we had "true" conservatives in power that yesterday's actions would have been different? IMO, this is a precursor to regulation of online poker in the U.S., and that would be a very tough sell had they not cracked down on the companies who chose to continue to operate illegally rather than leave the U.S. and settle like PartyGaming did.

    How else would the U.S. government be able to regulate the market if the poker "cowboys" remained operating?

    Economic conservatives such as Rand Paul, Wayne Root, etc would legalize it and tax it. The problem is progs on the far left don't want personal responsibility and social only conservatives don't want something they consider immoral to be illegal.
