U.S. and Florida Laws to Ruin my Hobby??

By: B3auty&B3ast @ 13:43 (EST) / 173 / Comment ( 1 )
The UIGEA already makes it difficult/undesireable for online poker platforms to operate in the United States. PokerStars is like one of two to work around it. Just as I start to get into online poker, my State, Florida, is considering a bill that will regulate online poker so that only interstate operators that pay taxes to Florida will be able to operate. In 5 months, I could lose access to all of the awesome free games on PS and to the vast majority of players worldwide.

FYI Florida, if this happens, you won't get my business. It's about time you just got an income tax and stop with all the regressive taxes.
