Article Body:
Many people were hoping that if the Democrats won control of Congress
they would reverse the online gambling ban, but experts doubt they will
even try or that if they do that the will be successful.

Once the bill was passed and signed into law by the president, it became
much harder to reverse the law.

The democrats would need   to bring up the law and get it to a vote, then
after the vote passed it   needs to go to the president for his signature.
The problem with this is   that the current president is the one who signed
the bill into law in the   first place.

Another problem is because the gambling ban was attached to another bill,
it means that to reverse the law the entire bill needs to be reversed,
but the other part of the bill is for an increase in port security, so
any congressmen who recommends reversing this law, will be going on
record as trying to reverse the increase in port security.

Because of this trying to get the law reversed could ruin a congressman’s
chances of ever getting elected to public office again for the rest of
their lives.

It is more likely that it will have to wait till the end of George Bushes
term in office and then get an amendment to the law that reverses only
gambling ban part of the law.

So if you are on Online Gambling enthusiast and you were hoping that
after the election the online gambling ban would j ust disappear I am
sorry to say you were mistaken and that you are going to have to wait a
little longer, but that does not mean you need to sit quietly by.

The key is to make sure that you are heard, write letters to congressmen,
and attend protest rallies anything that will keep this issue in the
front of the minds of the politicians so they know that just as the
Republicans lost the house so can they.
The republicans used the online gambling ban to try to gain votes for
them in the last weeks before the election, but it backfired on them and
lost them more votes then it brought in.

Hopefully the Democrats will learn from the mistakes of the Republicans
and will understand that banning something never works, and that it is
only thru regulating the online gambling industry that will ensure that
it is safe and honest to play and that no underage children manage to
Other wise I am sure that the Democrats will also see the wrath of the
American voters when it comes time for the next elections.

The American people are tired of having the government controlling every
aspect of their lives and I think this election may have made their point
for them.

So if the question is will they try to reverse the law I am sure they
will try, but how successful they will be is still up in the air, and no
one can really know what the outcome will be.
