Corresponding with Congress by email shouldn't be such a hassle

I am in a heated debate with Sen. Bob Casey about his refusal vote on the nomination of Debo Adegbile by the president.

In the same letter, I also complained about how long it took to get hold of legislators by having to fill out many little boxes of “required fields” via email, even before I can write the email note, only to be hassled about missing one of the required fields. This is a process that takes too long.

Then if the legislator chooses to reply to my email, in order for me to re-reply, I have to fill out all the little boxes again! This is a slowdown meant to limit replies.

If they can reply to me, I should have it as easy as they do to reply to them. You would think with computer databases my validity as a citizen has already been established, with therefore no need to fill out the boxes every time. I think this is purposely done to limit people from contacting Congress.

Sen. Casey’s answer to my complaint included this message: If you would like to respond to this message, please use the contact form on my website: http://​​contact/.
