Makes perfect sense on those who voted yea.
They want their local bookie to take in the "action".
Keep the dollars at home right?  Buy American etc. 
I just wish the casinos outside Nevada had sports books.

Anyone see that Simpsons episode where Krusty becomes a congressman?

He pulls the same stunt that Frist by quickly paper clipping his bill to a bigger, unrelated bill.

Sometimes you wonder if the "NAY" senators are degenerates themselves.
Bill Frist's religious right wingnuts!

I think this is probably the most coherent way to look at this.
As typical, the dems voted nay because the reps. voted yea...............just more typical Capitol Hill bullshit.......bunch of kids who can't get along.

Internet Gaming Bill  attached to Port Security Bill ( sneaky politics, what the hell does internet gaming have to do with port secutiy anyways? absolutely, nothing) on 9-29-06. Port Security Bill ( with Internet Gaming Bill attached) already passed in House of Representatives led by a majority of Republican Representatives voting yes on this bill. The number of votes needed to pass Port Security Bill in the Senate is  50 yes votes out of 100 total votes in the Senate. In the case of a tie, The Republican Vice-President Cheney will cast the tie breaking yes vote for the Republican Majority. Republican Senators that voted yes on the Internet Gaming Bill is 52. The Republican sponsored Port Security Bill  ( with Internet Gaming attached) is passed after the 50th Republican Senator votes yes to the bill, after that,  it no longer matters whether the Democratic Senators vote or do not vote for the Republican sponsered bill. The Republican sponsored Internet Gaming Bill will become law after the President signs the bill. Hopefully, we all vote these Republican majorities in the House and Senate out of office this November, so they do not even get the chance to consider passing another law next year to make responsible Internet Gaming a Federal crime for individual Americans partly because the far right Republican voting Conservative Christian base wants all online gaming to be outlawed. Save freedom in America, Give a shout, and vote Republicans out.

remember the democrats that voted yes for this bill had to, because of it being attached to the port security bill.  If they voted no, they would have been torn apart by the republicans.
This bill all comes down to the scumbag republicans like frist who snuck this fuckin attachment to the bill at the last minute.
Send all republicans packing in november or face more freedoms being taken away in the future.
And please dony get sucked into voting republican because of the gas prices coming down, because thats a illusion created by the republicans and oil companies to get suckers to vote them back into office, and for lots of people it will work on them.
After november you can be sure gas prices will soar thru the roof again.
The republicans are some really evil person

cd329, you are soooooo right, but i guarantee you  most of covers posters voted republican instead of democrat (which is idiotic if you love to gamble) and now are crying around about how the republicans suck behind  - we will see how serious everyone is as they appear to be come november elections to not voting republican - it always seems as though the republicans outsmart americans into voting for them - america is just getting what it deserved by being so foolish and putting Bush's behind and the rest of his comrades in office in the first place

Glad to see the two NJ guys voted no. NJ is full of corruption, but at least they have common sense when it comes to this.
