Let's continue contacting mainstream media to ask them to increase coverage of our issue. Let's contact Politico today. As they are widely read on Capitol Hill, this is a great place for us to reach out to.
Let's continue to own a lot of Facebook pages (senators, Congressmen, Congressional committees, etc.). Rep. Barton has cited our Facebook posts
, so we know it works.

- The House Financial Services Committee's Facebook page is here.

Let's also all send the PPA pre-written letters to our lawmakers. These will be updated when Rep. Barton's poker bill is introduced to the House (in other words, soon), so let's all get the current letters out before that. Once done, please reply ITT with "done", "sent", etc. to encourage others. Thanks!
