Barney Frank Online Poker Bill

"We expect within a few short weeks, most likely in the month of February, there will be a committee vote on this legislation," said John Pappas, President of the Poker Players Alliance. "This is a very critical and important for vote for the Poker Players Alliance, as well as the poker community, and we need everyone to step up and make sure that their voices are heard."

What Pappas expects and what will actually happen are two different things, however, though we trust that the PPA is in tight enough with Congressman Frank to know his future intentions.

Rep. Frank, the chair of House Financial Services Committee, introduced H.R. 2267 ("The Internet Gambling Regulation, Consumer Protection and Enforcement Act of 2009") in May of last year.

For right now Frank may have more pressing concerns.  At the top of the list is Government Run Healthcare.

On Tuesday, Republican Scott Brown won the Senate seat held by the late Ted Kennedy and Kennedy is no doubt turning over in his grave.

Brown proved to be an attractive candidate while his opponent, Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, not so.

"She let it become a personality contest and that was a mistake," Frank said.  He admitted earlier that her defeat would essentially "kill the health bill."
