This week's PocketFives.com Podcast features interviews with U.S. Congressmen Ron Paul (R-TX) and Jim McDermott (D-WA), along with a special appearance by new P5's Administrative member Nat "N 82 50 24" Arem.
U.S. Representative Ron Paul (R-TX) opposed the UIGEA back in 2006, and makes it clear to our Podcast listeners that he continues to oppose it today. Rep. Paul is currently co-sponsoring HR 5767 with Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), which is the very first piece of proposed pro internet-gambling legislation to boast bipartisan support. We'll also talk to Congressman Jim McDermott (D-WA), who has introduced HR 2607 – the Internet Gambling Tax Act. This bill specifically calls for a 2% licensing fee of internet gambling revenues to be paid to the U.S. government.
Later on in the show, new PocketFives.com Administrative Team member Nat "N 82 50 24" Arem makes a return guest appearance after the big news hit P5's earlier in the week. One of the most respected members in the online poker community, Nat was one of the people instrumental in uncovering the truth behind the Absolute Poker scandal in late 2007, and has published one of the most widely-read blogs in the online poker community.
