Subject: What's the Best Road Ahead for Online Poker?
Online Poker isn't going away and the Federal and State governments
are losing taxable revenue. Should the States just integrate online
poker into their lottery systems or should the licensed Casino
operators be in charge? Either way, the government needs the revenue.
I'm in favor of letting the Casinos and the States run their own poker
operations if they choose to. Competition is good. The Casino's can
provide additional incentives for players that the States wouldn't be
able to provide. Either way, it's a win win situation to garner more
badly needed taxable revenue.

Is this a bad idea?

What's so bad about it? You can't expect billions of dollars spent
online by Americans to go untaxed forever. It's only a matter of time
before ALL Internet purchases will be taxed. Amazon has been
collecting tax from customers in certain states.

Former New York Senator, Alfonse D=92Amato, wrote a piece about
regulating online poker.

The New Deal: Regulate and Tax iPoker

I's a great article and I agree with him 100%.

What's wrong with government control of speech?

Never mind.

State poker run by the States lottery commission.

State will be accountable for regulation and state citizens can have as
much faith in the system as they do in the lottery. Possible National
poker room ala Power ball .

Encouraging the states (or the Feds for that matter) to tax the internet
is a very bad idea.

The internet alllows a worldwide exchange of ideas and information without
the filter of political control. I don't think stomping on that is a
win/win.

Online poker may not be going away, but the players are going broke.
The US needs an American site, regulated by authorities. As far as
incentives, the best incentive you can get is smaller entry fees for
tournaments and smaller rake.

Online poker is the only place where you can get an INSTANT $600
credit when signing up. Consider it like a credit card company that
send everyone a $600 card, even those without money. Do you people
even think how many people stiff the sites for this, yet it's never
ending.
