Conservative Political Action Conference Opposes Restoration of America's Wire Act

    CPAC poll shows that 90 percent oppose attempts to impose federal bans on state-regulated online gambling

    The main driver and architect of legislation designed to largely ban online gambling in the United States, Sheldon Adelson, would be wise to heed the results of a poll taken among delegates to the recent Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), which discovered that such attempts to prevent properly state-regulated online gambling are far from popular.

    In what was almost a unanimous opinion (around 90 percent) respondents said they were opposed to such efforts, and that Adelson's Restoration of America's Wire Act constitutes a violation of the Tenth Amendment of the US Constitution and is an example of "crony capitalism."

    The poll was commissioned by the Institute for Liberty, a conservative action group whose mission includes stopping the federal government from "unnecessarily interfering in the daily lives of America's entrepreneurs."

    IFP president Andrew Langer commented that the poll shows that RAWA is rejected by conservatives as a breach of the US Bill of Rights and is an example of undue corporate interference in politics.

    "Conservatives see RAWA for what it is — one of the worst forms of crony capitalism in Congress today. RAWA is nothing short of an effort by one of the richest men in the world to ban a form of competition for his brick and mortar casino empire — and everyone knows it," Langer said.

    "Worse yet, he is even willing to trample on the Constitution to do it."

    Langer published the results of the poll in an op-ed for The Hill newspaper, widely read by Washington lawmakers, and may give them pause before considering reportedly fresh attempts through new US Attorney General Jeff Sessions to ramp up the banning attempt yet again following three years of failure.
