The House of Representatives is currently experiencing an extraordinarily high amount of email traffic. The Write Your Representative function is therefore intermittantly available. While we realize communicating to your Members of Congress is critical, we suggest attempting to do so at a later time, when demand is not so high. System engineers are working to resolve this issue and we appreciate your patience.
I’m sure it’s just a few computer savvy Ron Paul supporters who are causing all the problems.

Interesting that they think they can save the economy and they can’t even keep their own web site functional. bleh.
@Taylor to be fair, an apathetic voter base probably led them to believe they could get by hosting the site on an iPod.
try congress.org, i used it to send a thank you email to my rep…
I can’t imagine what kind of orthodoxy tests are given to would be techs for the House website, but the techs I knew when I was teaching them wouldn’t have passed any of them.
Thanks for the info guys. I found that my representative voted against the bailout and I sent him a thank you note.
@billymac thanks…that congress.org is working famously
