So the House passed a bill last month to ban online poker playing.

Jon Stewart describes this best:

When it comes to physical casinos, the argument is that the poor locals will wander in and spend their every last dollar. I don’t see the same argument working for online gambling, as the poor are unlikely to have access to the internet. I would guess you can’t fire up PartyPoker on the local library PC.

People that have a gambling addiction are going to have a gambling addiction regardless of whether there is online poker or not. If not, maybe they’ll just take up horse racing.
