This feature is no longer available.
Tonight, I find out they've made it harder to contact them. Why?
I think they're tired of listening to their constituents.
But, then...I've become EXTREMELY jaded.
"Communicating with Congress", as an alternative "choice" on the next page, gives one the 2nd grade instructions on how best to contact the creeps in Congress whose salaries WE pay.
(Dear moderators-if I've posted this incorrectly, please pull. I've never done a "vanity" before.)
Here’s the link-
Could it possibly be that the referenced website is not a government website? If you dig deep enough you will find that the website mentioned is privately owned.
Shouldn’t it read ........congress.org?
There’s no period in the link you posted.
Changes to Congress.org
By CQ Roll Call Staff
March 18, 2013 11:07 a.m.
Dear Congress.org user,
CQ Roll Call, the inventor of online advocacy, is excited to announce we will soon be rolling out several changes to Congress.org.
The updated site will introduce a new type of blog, Engaged! focusing on advocacy best practices that will lead to more effective Engagement. Discussions will focus on how to effectively execute a campaign, drive Engagement, and insight on tools to reach Congress and your audience with your message. The new Congress.org will take a look at how organizations are creating a groundswell around their issues and facilitating and organizing the conversation online. The Engaged! blog will help you move your advocacy campaign beyond letter writing and Facebook likes, to real action.
Over the next few days, as we make these changes, there will be a few features of the current Congress.org that may be inactive from time to time, so we wanted to take a moment and thank you for your patience.
Looks like they are just updating the site:
I clicked on Return To Homepage and it looks like while they’re updating the site some features will be inactive.
Went out and did some checking ... Am seeing from various sites Congress is encouraging fax and not emails. Something being mentioned regarding security on emails. You maybe are on to something. Not certain what ... but am seeing reference to fax .. no email or email will take longer to reach congressperson due to security concerns.
Government websites end in .gov:
Many thanks to all Freepers for calming me down.
I apologize for not doing more investigation immediately...a previous thread-—”Furious”—had me Furious, and after spreading the info in that thread about Obama”care” to e-mail friends, I had hoped to contact my congresscritters through the avenue I’ve become accustomed to.
I only hope their “improvements” don’t further alienate the taxpayers from their employees (congresscritters).
