The nation is in its second week of the government shutdown, and one thing seems to ring true for most Americans: they aren’t pleased.
A new website, Drunkdialcongress.org, plays off the country’s current distaste for the government by offering a way to release built up anger.
The site allows you to enter your phone number and call a member of Congress to let your feelings about the shutdown fly.
A note from the site says:
As Members of Congress quickly returned from their final symbolic, non-effective and otherwise useless votes to avert a government shutdown, the heavy drinking began. Reports of our representatives getting plastered on the government's dime - the one we have left - have come streaming in from witnesses all over Capitol Hill. Now's your chance to tell your Representative what you really think of their actions.
Will you give a congress member a piece of your mind? Tell us in the comment box below.
