Colorado congressman says the pastime of 10 million Americans should be legalised
Another American politician has raised his voice for the legalisation of online gambling, saying that respecting the wishes of 10 million American online gamblers by legalising the pastime could help to reduce the scary US deficit.
Writing in Wednesday's Wall Street Journal, Colorado Representative Jared Polis said President Obama and Congress have a short window to address debt issues before the political conflicts of the 2012 presidential election overwhelm opportunities to compromise.
Polis makes a few suggestions for increasing revenues, among them the legalisation and taxing of online gambling, which he claims could raise billions in tax revenues by creating a path to obtaining legal status for up to 10 million internet gamblers in the country, taxing operators....and requiring players to pay back taxes as part of achieving legal status.
