Barney Frank 'optimistic' repeal of Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act will pass
July 11, 2009
Barney Frank intensified his anti Unlawful
Internet Gambling Enforcement Act rhetoric and guaranteed to step forward on bills that would defer and eventually revoke the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act when he toured the Main Event at the WSOP on Sunday.
Before guiding in play with the customary "Shuffle up and deal call," Frank dubbed the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act the "stupidest" bill ever and pleaded poker players to write their Congressmen and Senators and implore them to annul it.
In a press accessibility following his Main Event appearance, Frank was sharp with his disapproval of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, and volunteered a schedule on his next steps to eject it from the law books.
Congressional team mates, who are well known for their perfect ethical lives, they all live coaching the rest of the nation how to come up to the high epitomes we meet so regularly," expressed Frank, implying to the latest sex scandals that have troubled the Republican party.
"By the way, it is odd that we say no gambling, because the country is in a terrible economic hole because of gambling," Frank added. "The difference is the law that passed by the Republicans stops individuals from gambling in the thousands with their own money. At the same time, they were allowing other institutions to gamble in the billions with other people's money."
Frank expresses that he and his board should get their work done on writing up new monetary ordinances by September, and that he'll go to work on the
online casino gambling rules after that during the fall.
"I did not further push the bill last year because it was clear President Bush would have vetoed it," Frank said.
"Now that we have a president that I know is not in hock to the right wing, I plan to move this bill. I am the chairman of the committee of jurisdiction. We have two bills, one to suspend the regulations and one to repeal the whole thing and set up new regulations," Frank revealed.
"So it is my intention this fall to bring up in the committee bills that I'm sponsoring. I think they're going to pass. I am really optimistic we're going to get this repealed."
Barney Frank revealed he hasn't spoken to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi about the bill yet.
"I would be surprised if she wasn't supportive" Frank stated. "People know I've been doing and nobody it has told me not to. I plan to move ahead with it and have it ready in the fall to present it to them."
"It's a wedge issue for the Republican party," Frank supplemented. "It puts the Republicans in a bind between hardened conservatives and another strong group of theirs. If you look at people who say keep the government out of my business, say don't interfere with my freedom, don't over regulate business and let's have freedom on the Internet, this bill is the worst example of a violation of all of those."
