Should The U.S. Allow Online Gambling?

Thursday, July 29, 2010 - 8:54 PM
From the New York Times:
With pressure mounting on the federal government to find new revenues, Congress is considering legalizing, and taxing, an activity it banned just four years ago: Internet gambling.

Perhaps if the government were able to raise more money from internet gambling, they could have more tax friendly policies for savers.

I find it hypocritical that the US criminalizes internet gambling while allowing state lotteries, horse race wagering and so on.  People will always find ways to get around these futile laws.  Legalize it and generate some tax revenue.  So my short answer to your question is.....YOU BET.
