Legalization of internet gambling was going to hitch a ride onto a financial reduction measure bill proposed by lawmakers in the US. That was the hopes of people for legalizing online gambling anyway. Now it doesn't look like it will happen and not because they could not get the measure attached but because the financial reduction Super Committee may not transpire at all and may get squashed Monday. Don't let this discourage you though. There are enough people who now know online poker or gambling can only help the US economy that hearings will continue with a light at the end of the tunnel. From Reuters:Barring some unforeseen development, the Republican and Democratic co-chairs of the committee are due to issue a joint statement on Monday conceding defeat in their three-month search for a debt deal, aides told Reuters on Sunday.With the intensifying 2012 election campaign stoking already bitter partisanship in Washington, the U.S. Congress will be hard-pressed to reform expensive government benefit programs and an archaic tax code that are seen as the keys to improving the country's fiscal health.Given the complexity of passing such legislation through Congress, it could even be 2014 before real progress is made.
