"Duly noted, we've gotten several calls".Just say you oppose the bill and I guess that's that. Dunno if it will have any impact, but doesn't hurt to do it.15 seconds.- Jordan

Thankfully, I have Commerce Casino and The Bike like 10 minutes away in case this does pass. I wonder if they'll let me multi-table or have $3 rebuys. :club:- Crash

Just call and tell them you strongly oppose the internet gaming bill that is leeching on the port security bill.- Jordan

What exactly would this prohibit again? Transfers from credit cards and bank accounts to online gambling sights?Do we ever transfer directly to the site when we use neteller or intermediaries like that anyway?

It would KILL the action on most sites. This would be HORRIBLE for people like myself who play online for a living.

I make my living online although I live in Las Vegas, it is just nice to have these casinos around for when I do want to play live, unlike my hometown of Milwaukee. I called the number and left my message for them. I can now just cross my fingers and pray that this doesnt pass. And like Jordan said, I would march for this as well.Jeff

Be careful about calling members of Congress that aren't your representative. They don't care what you think. So either block your number and tell them you're from their state or call your Senator.

Jordan, P5's is saying it's the last thing to be voted on tonight, somewhere around 11pm. And I'm watching CSPAN-2 now, and they are voting on the US-Mexico Border Fence (the HR 6061 bill).
According to Petoria, I'm the most hardcore Wings fan in Indy, not Indiana. I call Bullshit.

ISAL.

And I would give anything or kill anyone to be with Julia Roberts, Uma Thurman, Diane Kruger, Elisha Cuthbert, and Elizabeth Shue.
