Republicans Weigh in on Online Gaming

As the political situation in America gears up in anticipation of the November 2012 election, gambling enthusiasts are looking to the government for answers and any possible changes regarding online casino games legislation.

At the Republican National Convention, the party issued a manifesto under the Republican National Committee that expressed their stance on online gaming. It makes clear that there is no significant change in the way the party views casino games online. The document has a section called “Making the Internet Family Friendly, “ and states that many Americans are addicted to online gaming, which can destroy families. Therefore, the Republican party would like to prohibit online gaming altogether.
 
The document called for a reversal to the recent Justice Department ruling on the meaning of the Wire Act because it now allows for a legal entrance into the online gaming world. The document says that the decision is “distorting the formerly accepted meaning of the Wire Act.”
 
The Poker Players Alliance, the main body trying to push the legalization of online casino games forward, reacted to the manifesto immediately and called it a step backwards.


Rich Muny, Vice President of Players Relations, said that the manifesto does not reflect the voices of House Republicans who support the legalization and regulation of online casino games, nor does it reflect the feelings of voters.
