Default Contact Your Representative:

With the current stalemate in congress today would be a good time to voice your opinion. Each of their website and/or contact info is listed in alphabetical order by state. (Warning-Bohnner's is overloaded-you might try again later).

I'll call him in the morning and tell him to hang tough. DO NOT COMPROMISE. Do not agree to tax increases.

The last time I contacted my representatives I got a reply from Carl Levin that had nothing to do with what I wrote him about.

Debbie Stabenow didn't respond.

and Mr. Forlini sent a message back saying he couldn't help due to other matters.

Two democrats, one republican, and none of them worth my time.

I am again not represented by anyone.

Carl has always been responsive to my concerns even though we disagree on almost every issue. Stabenow never responds to my concerns..

Every time I contact mine I either get a letter telling me why I am wrong or blathering on about something that has precious little to do with the issue that I actually addressed.

So I am not represented either.

I do think just logging a call or an email does let them know what's going on. And some of them do take it into consideration even if that consideration is only political.
