The Phone March on Washington

by Lou on September 9, 2006

I came across this and am reposting it here. Please join in by phoning your senator on Tuesday.

The Background
H.R. 4411, the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives earlier this summer . The bill may now be considered by the U.S. Senate.

Here’s What You Can Do to Stop This Legislation
Please call 800-289-1136 from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM Eastern Time Tuesday September 12. This is a FREE phone call and will connect you directly to your Senators’ offices. Here are some talking points for you to use:

1. I am voter in your state.

2. I strongly oppose any legislation that would prohibit online poker, and urge the Senator to vote against such legislation.

3. Poker is a skill game enjoyed by 70 million Americans.

4. The Senator should seek to regulate online poker much like the government regulates other forms of gaming, like lotteries.

5. Prohibitions don’t work. Any legislation that tries to ban online poker will only drive those players underground.

6. Again, I urge the Senator to oppose any attempts to prohibit me from playing the great American game of poker on the Internet.

You can help to continue to enjoy online poker in the United States by taking action now. Just one phone call is all it takes.
