Regulators Say Gambling Ban Won’t Work!!
04 March 2008
The Federal Reserve and the Officials at the Treasury Department, after going through more than 200 comments from banks, gamblers, church groups and members of congress on recommendations on the UIGEA (Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act) of 2006, say WON’T WORK!!!
Shelley Berkley, Representative from Nevada, was very irate and said” This Legislation has a loophole big enough to drive a truck through, and was designed solely to protect betting on horse racing and lotteries over the net.” She also says that the fact that this bill was included in the GOP’s “Values Agenda” proves it is nothing more than an election-year ploy to satisfy Republicans on the far right who want to outlaw adults from gambling in Nevada or anywhere else.
Berkley said.” A Man’s home is his castle unless he chooses to participate in online gaming. Then his home becomes the province of the federal government.”
