    Why you should care about the Supreme Court's Ruling this week

    Supreme Court strikes down limits on overall federal campaign donations

    So this means that a rich person could contribute the maximum amount towards every member of congress.
    That's a bad idea in any case, but in particular, it is bad for online poker and online gambling in general. Sheldon Adelson, the multibillionaire casino owner has sworn to line the pockets of everyone in Washington in his bid to "protect children and problem gamblers" from the evils of online gambling. He's got the money, and he's got the will. He also has a troop of lackeys through whom he can contribute far more than the $2600 cap per election.

    Mega-Donor Opens Wallet On The Hill To Kill Online Gambling

    There could be darker days for online poker ahead than we have yet witnessed.
    I'm not slurring my words. I'm talking in cursive. I believe the ladies find it to be quite elegant.

    I don't see Adelson getting enough traction to pass federal legislation, given that many other casino companies want to get in on the action.

    Adelson can say that but he just wants to get rid of online poker so players have to go to his casino. Screw him and his money. He needs to get a clue just like the US government.

    You shouldn't, really, it is more of the same

    The media is making a deal out of it, but it is nothing new and nothing different. Regardless of previous caps, if you haven't heard SuperPac's were/are THE loophole that obliterated the Caps. People could always give UNLIMITED funds to SuperPac's. So, the latest Supreme Court ruling really doesn't change anything. It juggles some structure around is all. Maybe it helps (donations to Senatorial and Congressional Committees which have become uncapped must be reported by name, whereas SuperPacs can be completely anonymous). The rich ran the political system before, and they will still run it.
