Fractured by ongoing partisanship and the typical stagnation of an election year, the United States Congress today can be best defined by its inaction rather than action. With so few issues being addressed on Capitol Hill, the 2014 mid-term elections signifies the next major opportunity to break the political stalemate and open the door for advancing reforms that meet the growing needs of Americans. As such, the prospects for federal legislation to license and regulate online poker in the near future are slim, drawing attention instead to the states where progress is more promising.
