Do you check your Congressman and Senator's homepages to see how they vote on bills?
I check about once a month to see if they feel the same as do about bills they vote on. In the last six months my Senator has been in agreement with me and my Congressman all except two bills. If I don't like what I see, I send them an email. My hope is that people will get in the habit of doing this. This is the only way to find out if you are being represented . They can often get side tracked by pressure from their party and others that might not feel about an issue as you do. Send them emails listing the issues that are important to you and how you feel about them.
I will on some occasions. However, checking votes can be tricky. There can be a bill for motherhood and apple pie, but have an amendment buried in it that seeks to give a subsidy to apple growers because people are not buying enough apples, and the cost would be passed on to the consumer. Your congressman may vote against the bill because of the amendment, but he will be recorded as voting against motherhood and apple pie. Amendments and riders that have no real bearing on the main bill are often added during the committee process for the sole purpose of keeping the author from pushing the bill or forcing him to vote for something he does not like. Our system of government is good. The rules and procedures congress has adopted over the years need a major overhaul.
Yes I absolutely do and I also find if someone on the "opposite" side as me breaks with party lines and does something that is right and not just for the lobbyists etc. I make it a point to thank them. It takes guts for a politician to cross the aisle at times and I try to acknowledge that also.
I do wish people would be more involved, it would def make the US a better place and maybe, just maybe, get us back to a time where we were actually a government by, of and for the people.
I regularly get emails on legislation being processed in Congress and the results of votes taken by those who represent me. This tool is an important opportunity to keep up to date with actions in Congress. The tool is Gov.track and is an excellent resource to stay on top of legislation. I often also discover other legislation which is under the radar that Congress is considering that affects us all. The media does not always report topics important to us as citizens only what they feel are issues to be covered.
