Posted By Rob Bluey On December 2, 2009 @ 8:00 am In Scribe | Comments Disabled
The Heritage Foundation kicks off its live webcast series on Facebook  today at 2 p.m. with a major address from House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) on a pro-growth jobs plan  that doesn’t break the bank.
We’re using our popular Facebook page (93,000+ fans) and a live video feed from Ustream.tv to give Facebook users an opportunity to ask questions and watch the event  without ever leaving the social networking site. In addition to taking questions from the Heritage audience, Cantor will also field those submitted in the Facebook chatroom. Ask your question now .
You don’t need to be a fan of Heritage to watch the event; the video will be publicly available. Posting a question or comment in the chatroom also publishes it as your status update, spreading the message to others instantaneously through Facebook’s news feed. It’s a model first popularized by CNN during President Obama’s inauguration , and later used by the White House  and Jonas Brothers  to increase interaction with their supporters.
Cantor will address the growing disconnect between Washington and Main Street, and offer a conservative vision  to overcome the challenges facing families, workers, and small business — as well as the greater macroeconomic challenges facing America. His speech will take place one day prior to the White House Jobs Summit .
