Ever Bing (conservatives)/Google (liberals) a Congress person or Senator only see that in order to contact them you have to reside in their district? Or, they give you a 1”x1” box with 2pt font in which to enter your “out of district” comment!
These people vote every day on issues that impact every single one of us. When election time comes around, these people go outside of their district and even their state to raise funds.
THEN WHY CAN’T A CALIFORNIAN (so far still part of the US) EMAIL A CONGRESSMAN,
LIKE THE MAJORITY LEADER, JOHN BOEHNER, WHO REPRESENTS THE 8TH DISTRICT IN OHIO,
DIRECTLY WITHOUT HAVING TO USE THE 1”X1” 2pt FONT BOX!!!!!
Sen. Arlen Specter’s email service adds insult to injury by flat-out stating that if you don’t live in Pennsylvania that he won’t bother to respond at all or some such nonsense… How about when someone out of my district votes for something that impacts me, maybe I should not have to pay any attention to or obey the new law, legislation, etc…!
REPUBLICANS, wake up! Open up your own communications channels.
This is precisely why the Tea Parties gained traction in the first place.
You have been and are out of touch with your constituents who include all of us whether we reside in your district or not. You don’t restrict campaign contributions to only those who live within your district nor are we governed only be the actions of the legislators in our own districts. Open your eyes and ears and start seeing “we the people” and listen to our voices.
BTW, here is John Boehner’s contact info from his (our) website: If you are a resident of Ohio’s 8th District, your comments can be submitted via my Congressional Office Website, which you can access by simply clicking here: http://johnboehner.house.gov.

Residents of the 8th District
of Ohio may use the toll-free number: (800) 582-1001
All other lowly taxpayers please use and pay for your own calls or postage: (my comment not from his website)
