  1. How can I contact Paul Ryan if I am not in his precinct. His role as Speaker of the House makes contacting him important for all citizens.

    How about a phone number or email contact for Paul Ryan if you are not in his precinct. Currently, you must identify as being in his precinct to send an email. All of his phone lines are always busy. Being Speaker of the House means that citizens nationwide need to speak with him.

    • Create a Dashboard for Reps to see the votes

      Voting sends Emails which I doubt are tracked, counted or considered in time. A Dashboard should be available for Reps to see the vote counts from constituents. Eventually I would like to see if REps in other states are actually following the consituents.

            Great suggestion. There’s actually a browser extension “Greenhouse” offered by allaregreen.us that does exactly this. I will ask the team about potential integration. Thanks -Brittney

          • Holding our Representatives Accountable

            It's always frustrating when our representatives vote counter to our requests. But who knows, maybe we are simply the minority and representative's vote reflects the majority.

            Or maybe our representative's vote is the result of toeing the party line. Or maybe our representative's vote is the result of a recent phone call from major campaign contributor. Or maybe our representative's vote is the result of a recent lunch with their future employers on K street.

            The point is, WE DONT KNOW.

            Countable, help us hold our representatives accountable. Show us how many people in (let's say) Nevada have asked Sen.…

              Great suggestion! I will definitely forward it along for the team to review. Thank you so much for the feedback.

            • Show which elected representatives don't show up for session or votes.

              I feel most people would like to know if their elected officials actually show up to perform to sessions and vote, or if they neglect this responsibility campaigning for the next election.

              • Third party representation

                Id like to see Jill Stein of the Green Party and Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party take on some of these issues. I think it would help add more and different voices to the issue that people want to hear. The two party system is a joke after all.

                  • Graphs showing what my representatives voted on

                    I would like to see how my vote compares to my representatives. Maybe a % of the amount of bills we agree on. A quick highlight of bills we both voted yes or no for, or bills we disagreed on. This would make it much quicker to see if my representatives are voting the way I want them to.

                      • Rebuild Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

                        Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have been in us government conservatorship since 2008. They have paid back more than $100b to the us treasury more than they borrowed. Isn't it time to release these companies from conservatorship? Why does the us treasury and banking system want them out of the picture?

                            • Paul Ryan's worst decision was to NOT stand as President for the Republicans. For how long must he defend the indefensible?

                              Rather than continuing to offer lame excuses for Trump's buffoonery, for the sake of the GOP Paul Ryan should join the chorus of those who see Trump as hopelessly unqualified for high office, and seek an alternative by whatever means. The American people's support for this fool does nothing for the US's standing in world affairs, and the unfolding soap opera rather than able government destabilises the entire world.

                                  • Senator Reid. Your parting shot at our President elect is deplorable. I hope you enjoy the pension we Americans are going to pay you.

                                    Mr. Trump will push for term limits for congress which is a great idea. After all they will still get a life time pension which is more than most Americans will ever see. I am 78 and living on S.S. and working to survive.

                                      • Solution to Stalemate Election

                                        Encouraging COLLIN POWELL to jump into the Presidential Race as the LOYALISTS PARTY could save U.S. (one time he was going to attempt being president but family was threatened) Now all American Families feel threatened if either candidate is elected. POWELL=1) Political Experience [no so-called mistakes] 2) Honesty 3) Wisdom 4) Brave [not short-tempered]
                                        P.S. CIA & FBI should find who his family threateners were and put them in slammer

                                          It's 2015! Yet we have no www.vote.gov!

                                          Every voter who cares should be able to log in with their voter registration and vote on pending legislation so politicians have hard data.

                                          Every time a representative votes against their district it can be documented and perhaps even investigated for possible quid pro quo, bribery, corruption!
