NEWS: Politicians often say they are for or against something, yet the things we want too often get voted down and things we oppose are passed. We need to keep a closer eye on what's going in in D.C. Below is an easy way to do this.
WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: You can register for a free service from Congress.org called "MegaVote." This service notifies you via e-mail of how your Senators and Representatives actually voted. They also send you a summary of bills up for a vote so you can be informed on what's coming up and how to contact your representatives in Washington to make your voice heard.
