I posted about the online gambling bill a few weeks ago. The Republicans attached a bill that bans most (With certain exceptions for their political contibutors) internet gambling in the United States. They attached it to the Port Security Bill and passed it in the dark of night...
First of all there is NO REASON these bills should have been combined.
Remember back to 1994 when the Republicans promised to handle Congress differently? I do. They condemned behavior like combining bills, or course, once they took power they kept doing the exact same thing...
Please follow this link and watch a 3 minute and 45 second video about the bill, how it was passed, and which special interest groups were involved.
It is well worth your time.
Tim Zank, what do you think?
