>Voters calling their lawmakers on Thursday were getting busy signals as congressional phone lines jammed with callers voicing their opinions on the financial rescue package the House will vote on Friday.
>The Capitol switchboard and many members’ offices have been inundated with so many phone calls that multiple phone lines in many offices have reached their capacity. That means many callers have only received busy signals.
As I write this, the House’s official write your Rep. tool is down. Various reports have shown that more than 90 percent of the calls and emails members of Congress are receiving are from constituents who want them to vote against the bailout.
