Bills for online gambling in Congress

July 6, 2015

The country is going through a rough patch; the economy does not seem to be as flourishing as some believe. The Restoration of America’s Wire Act of 2015 is being one of the main bills against any form of online gambling in the US. In spite of this, RAWA is supporting gambling, land based casinos. This week, we could see another of the movements against online gambling; South Carolina senior Senator, Lindsey Graham and Utah Representative Jason Chaffetz brought up again bill RAWA 2015. The Restoration of America’s Wire Act of 2015 bill has been created by anti online gambling groups, of course, with the support from Las Vegas Sands Corporation owner Sheldon Adelson. Graham’s bill has reached the Senate, being co-sponsored by several Congressmen: California Senator Diane Feinstein, New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte, Utah Senator Mike Lee, Indiana Senator Dan Coates, North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis and Florida Senator Marco Rubio.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio has been one of the main supporters of Adelson’s campaign to ban online gambling. His lack of experience in the political ground has not stopped him from becoming one of the candidates for the GOP nomination for President of the United States in 2016. And maybe that confidence, or lack of it, is what made him to join forces with Sheldon Adelson: “People buy into my agenda. I don’t buy into theirs. When I run for office, I tell people where I stand. My stands are not influenced by my contributors; I hope my stands influence my contributors. I have a long history of opposing the expansion of gambling. I believe that for the most part, especially that kind of gambling, is a tax on the poor and does little to develop the economy. Vegas is Las Vegas. They have a right in Las Vegas to have any gambling they want. They have laws. They have legislators. They can vote on what they want or don’t want. In Florida, I have a long history of opposing expansion of gambling. When you talk about online gambling, that comes into Florida. That is potentially people, including young people, who are going to go online and gamble and lose money. I just don’t believe that’s the right approach for our country. I believe that that kind of gambling is a tax on the poor and does little to develop the economy.”
