The Obama Administration has had trouble with some of their appointments to positions of power after Republicans have placed holds on the appointees. That has caused a ripple down effect that now stretches into the debate over online gambling.

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner granted a delay to the implementation of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act last December. That decision caused Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl to place holds on a half dozen appointees.

The Washington Post is reporting, however, that a meeting took place between Kyl and Geithner last month in which Geithner promised to not delay the UIGEA again. In exchange, Kyl released the holds on the six appointees.

That places much pressure on Representative Barney Frank and the dozens of other US lawmakers that are pushing for the UIGEA to be overturned. Although Frank has already introduced legislation to overturn the UIGEA, the House Finance Committee that Frank chairs has not yet marked up the Bill.

Is there an Obama healthcare tax on all those internet transactions?  Maybe he could hire some IRS agents to make sure those folks are paying taxes?
