Wed, 06 May 2009 18:11:31 +0000 – Two Congressmen unveiled legislation Wednesday that would enable Americans to legally gamble online.

"This is, I believe, the single biggest example of an intrusion into the principle that people should be free to do things on the Internet.

The law currently prohibits credit card companies and banks from processing bets placed on online gambling Web sites. For more on this story, click here.
