I don't know if the public will be outraged, apathetic, or supportive. I know online poker is big business (although I don't think I have a single friend who plays it), but most of these companies moved their operations overseas. Now the U.S. shuts down their sites, issues indictments, and tries to confiscate their money.
Not to mention the millions of citizens who had credit balances with these companies who will now never get paid.
Since this is Tax Day, perhaps legalizing it and taxing it might be a better idea?
