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.

if we get one hugely organized fund from like poker players ALL OVER.. not just 2p2.. i guarantee this thing gets changed.. a lot of effort but trust me the amount of money raised would get the politicians to change the law and play in the games themselves if they dont already

There should be another stickied thread with your pledge to contact legislation.

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.
