Re: Monday's Action Plan: Vacation time is over...let's get back to the work of winning our rig

Monday, March 19, 2012

Let's keep demanding action on online poker licensing legislation. The Senate passed the Transportation bill, so let's keep on the House:
  1. Let's send House Transportation Committee members NEW tweets: HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.
  2. Let's make and like pro-poker posts on the Facebook walls of lawmakers who've not heard much from us recently on Facebook via the action plan: Rep. Robert Turner HERE, Rep. Joe Wilson HERE, Rep. Robert Wittman HERE, Rep. John Yarmuth HERE, Rep. Todd Young HERE & HERE, the House Financial Services Committee HERE, and the House Chamber HERE.
  3. Let's send a NEW prefilled tweet promoting today's action plan HERE, and let's share today's action on our own Facebook walls HERE.
Please reply in this thread with "signed', "tweeted", "done", etc.to encourage others to participate. The past 179 actions have generated triple-digit participation, so let's keep it growing. Thanks!


--------------

If you wish to do more today, please consider posting pro-poker comments to some the Facebook walls of some senators HERE. We can't do them all at once, of course, but let's all try to hit three of these each day.

Re: Tuesday's Action Plan: Tell Congress to support poker!

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Let's remind the House Commerce Subcommittee and the Senate Indian Affairs Committee that they need to take action on online poker:
  1. Let's send House Subcommittee for Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade Chair Mary Bono Mack and the rest of the subcommittee tweets requesting a markup for HR 2366, the Online Poker Act: HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.
  2. Let's send the Senate Indian Affairs Committee members these tweets: HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.
  3. Let's post and like pro-poker comments to the Facebook walls of Subcommittee Chair Bono Mack HERE, House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Fred Upton HERE & HERE, and the Commerce Committee HERE.
  4. Let's send a NEW prefilled tweet promoting today's action plan HERE, and let's share today's action on our own Facebook walls HERE.
Please reply in this thread with "tweeted", "done", etc.to encourage others to participate. The past 180 actions have generated triple-digit participation, so let's keep it growing. Thanks!

Re: Tuesday's Action Plan: Tell Congress to support poker!

I have wrapped up this week's PPA weekly update. It includes much of today's action plan. Let's all ensure we've completed the FB stuff so they all have lots of posts to like!

I added two other FB walls as well (Sen. Akaka and the Senate Indian Affairs committee): HERE and HERE.
