He says as it related to marijuana:
"I can't nullify congressional law. I can't ask the Justice Department to say, 'Ignore completely a federal law that's on the books.' What I can say is, 'Use your prosecutorial discretion and properly prioritize your resources to go after things that are really doing folks damage.'
He should have said this about poker.

And yet, he is willing to ask the Justice Department to completely ignore the Federal Law that states illegals who are in America must be deported. So for marijuana he won't get involved, but with a stroke of a pen he is ordering Eric Holder and Janet Napoletano NOT to enforce Federal Immigration law.
He has also used Executive orders to by pass Congress on two other issues.
You can't make this type of statement and turn around and do the shit he is doing and not be called on it. Simply put he doesn't care about poker, if he did, he would tell Holder to back off the online sites and/or put out an Executive Order to allow it.
Don't hold your breath folks.

We understand your frustration with the current situation, and that frustration is shared by many of us in the poker community. We hope to have positive news soon regarding online poker regulation in the remaining U.S. states.

VanessaSelbst 2016-07-30 11:45:47 @g0lfa ok, fair enough. but people like easier concrete answers on things they can do ;-) and don't tell anyone voting isn't imp't!!!
KaraOTR 2016-07-30 11:44:18 @zedmaster84 True, and doing it with much less finesse!
VanessaSelbst 2016-07-30 11:44:15 @g0lfa Those are great, but pitting them against voting, an easy straightforward way to have voice heard, creates a weird false dichotomy.
g0lfa 2016-07-30 11:43:37 @VanessaSelbst vote with your dollar. Idk all the answers just increase your awareness on what you can do to impact movement in right direc

VanessaSelbst 2016-07-30 11:36:19 @EmilyJillette Just wondering, is it hard tip or soft tip?
