It's all about the banking industry, if it really hates the existing law and puts even a little of its massive lobbying power on the side of this bill then it'll probably pass though unless it's rolled up in some other larger more important bill I wouldn't be surprised to see a veto from the jesus freak in chief. If it's just the PPA, then forget it we can fight the good fight but it won't matter much. Look for signs of republican votes on the appropriate committees in the early stages of the process, that will likely indicate whether the banks are putting some weight behind it. By all means send off form letters and emails but in terms of people making any serious decisions based on whether this has a chance of passing, where the banking industry stands is the critical factor.

I've said this before... Is there something we could do with money?

I know it sounds lazy, but as a community, we have a TON more money than we have drive and perservierance.

I hate talking on the phone.

I agree with Jman, isnt there some political fund raiser we could donate to? I would think our money would talk louder than a phone call or a letter.

What exactly does this money go to? It looks like they've raised $218 so far. I think we could probably make a small difference, but I don't wanna donate until someone confirms for me that this will be helpful.

LOL I dont think you realize how much money big lobbying groups have. Random online poker players donating wouldn't even come close.

One year chart
Its been moving up in the last month or two. People in the know have been buying stock, so this announcement has been predicted for awhile. In fact, it is probably tamer wording than many insiders expected so the stock fell. Or there could be some other reasons. There is a thread about it in business and finance forum.

Obviously if they get involved that's a ton of money. But it's naive to think that money solely from individual online players could even approach the horse racing, state lotteries, Indian casinos, and anti-sports betting (read: NFL) lobbies.

If, say, Stars, Party, FTP, Daniel N./FCP, and the B&M casinos get involved then some noise might be made. I have a feeling, though, that the anti-online gambling crowd (not talking ultraconservative right wingers here) can throw just as much, if not more, money at the problem.

So what does everyone think of the actual bill?

Looks like it could be bad for us, but I admit my legalese is not up to snuff.
