Done, good to see some congressmen/women taking note of our efforts, recognition could be the first step towards swaying some opinions our way!

Re: Wednesday Action Plan: Support the Senate committee online gaming hearing in just two minut

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

The Senate Indian Affairs Committee will be holding another hearing on Internet gaming on February 9th, and PPA Board Member and 2+2er Patrick "Skallagrim" Fleming will be testifying! Let's all continue to tell the committee that we want them to support our right to play:
  1. Let's send the Senate Indian Affairs Committee members these NEW tweets: HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.
  2. Let's go to the Senate Indian Affairs Committee members' Facebook walls and like all the pro-poker comments -- and post some new ones: HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.
  3. Sen. Boozman (R-AL) responded on Facebook yesterday to the concerns of the poker enthusiasts who have been sharing their thoughts on the issue on his Facebook wall! Let's all take a moment to thank the senator for responding to our comments: HERE
  4. Let's send a NEW prefilled tweet promoting the daily action plan: HERE
Please reply in this thread with "tweeted", "done", etc. to encourage others to participate. The past 148 actions have generated triple-digit participation, so let's keep it growing. Thanks!

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

If you wish to do more today, let's reach out to the Payroll Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance, and Medicare Physicians Payment Fix Conference Committee via Facebook with respectful requests urging inclusion of federal online poker legislation. Simply like the pro-poker posts and make a short, supportive post of your own. When commenting on preexisting posts, please be sure the post is appropriate for pro-poker comments. [Speed tip: Search for "poker" or "2366" with CTRL-F, then choose "highlight", to identify poker posts quickly.]:

Republicans:
Democrats:

Re: Wednesday Action Plan: Support the Senate committee online gaming hearing in just two minut

Glad we are hitting up the Indian Hearing but after it's over I think we should really amp up our message to those involved in finding sources of funding to compensate extending the payroll tax cuts.

Quote:
Tensions over the payroll tax extension escalated in Congress on Tuesday as lawmakers waded into the most contentious — and vexing — issue of all: how to pay for the $160 billion package.
We need to pitch this to Democrats...
Quote:
Camp, a lead Republican in the payroll talks, challenged Democrats to pitch their own ideas for how to pay for the package, since they rejected the Republicans’ proposals.
And we especially need to pitch this to Republicans who want alternatives to increasing taxes on the wealthy...
Quote:
“Everything boils down to more taxes with the Democrats,” said Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.), another conferee. “I’m beginning to ask myself the question, is this a serious effort to find a way to extend the payroll tax holiday and unemployment insurance, or is it just a way to say no and keep beating up on millionaires and billionaires?”
