My OpenCongress: track every bill and lawmaker in Congress - Boing Boing

This article on Boing Boing give an introduction to "myopencongres"

essentially a way for you to keep track of what's goingo n in congress, for free.

congressmen & women are supposed to represent the people
yet your average citizen has no idea how congress works, what bills are up for vote, or even who their own representatives are.

with my open congress, you can track specific bills, lawmakers representatives etc.


personalyl i think it's important that most American's start taking a more active role in our government, this is supposed to be a democracy after all (or at least a democratic republic to be technical)
