Here's a tweet for Rep. Wolf: http://clicktotweet.com/2au71

"@RepWOLFPress: Ban poker because of Abramoff scandal? That's a reason for us to ban stuff Congress does, not for Congress to ban stuff I do!"

We sure had a terrific week, winning both hearings. In fact, Rep. Olson (R-TX) cited our Facebook and Twitter activism in his remarks to the House subcommittee!

Let's get back to reaching out to the deficit super committee today. Reports on the committee actually producing a bill are grim, but we can still benefit by making a final push here. This push will reinforce to the super committee's members our position, which they will take back to their day-to-day roles. So, lets' make a difference in just 30 seconds!

The hearings went well and all the stakeholders are out making themselves heard. This is a sign of progress, as it means the ball is rolling and everyone is jockeying for position. We all need to take steps now to ensure that lawmakers here from all of us. They need to know that we want this to move and that we want the interests of the players represented.

Rep. Olson (R-TX) cited our Facebook and Twitter activism in his remarks to the House subcommittee, so let's get a final push on the House and Senate committees that held the poker hearings last week. We need to make a great final impression:

- Chair Mary Bono Mack asked for input on this issue on her Facebook wall, so let's provide lots of it. There are now over 200 posts on this thread, so I guarantee there are ones you've not yet liked. Please like the pro-poker ones and add one of your own! HERE
- Rep. Frank Wolf, who testified against our right to play at the Friday House hearing (his testimony), needs to hear from more of us. Here's a FB post where we can post comments (HERE), and here's a NEW prefilled, editable tweet (HERE).

- Let's send the House subcommittee members these NEW tweets: HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.

These will take you less than thirty seconds! Thank you for participating.

Let's reach out today to the GOP presidential candidates. Former Gov. Mitt Romney says he is evaluating the issue and is preparing a response, so it makes sense for us to reach out to him to ask him to support our right to play.

While doing so, we ought to reach out to the rest of the field as well. This will benefit us by demonstrating to them the fact that many Americans want this. It will also help us in the 2012 GOP Party Platform fight. We were close to getting the anti-online poker plank removed in 2008. I think we have a great shot at getting this out of the platform in 2012 if we all do our part:

- Send prefilled, editable tweets to the GOP presidential candidates: HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.

Please reply in this thread with tweeted, done, etc. to encourage others to participate. The past 83 actions have generated triple-digit participation, so let's keep it growing. Thanks!

========================

If you wish to do more today, let's reach out more to the House and Senate committees that held the poker hearings last week. We need to make a great final impression, so at minimum let's at least like the pro-poker posts there:

- Chair Mary Bono Mack asked for input on this issue on her Facebook wall, so let's provide lots of it. HERE
- Rep. Frank Wolf, who testified against our right to play at the Friday House hearing (his testimony), needs to hear from all of us. Here's a FB post where we can post comments. HERE
- Continue to reach out to both committees via Facebook with respectful requests for them to support poker. Please choose at least three.

Haven't posted in a while, but still sending daily tweets and facebook messages.

I've also called Rep. David McKinley as I'm one of his constituents and have had several 15+ minute conversations with his DC staffers on this issue.
