YouTube Asks Users To Engage Congress

    February 18, 2009

YouTube is expanding its Senate Hub and House Hub channels to make it easier for people to communicate with their members of Congress.

The YouTube Blog offers details. "Each week, we’ll highlight a video from a member of Congress that solicits questions or input from you about the country’s most pressing issues."

"Using Google’s new Moderator tool, you’ll be able to not only submit your own responses through text, but also vote on other people’s responses — allowing the best submissions to rise to the top."

The first video comes from Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) who wants to know what people think about the economic stimulus package passed by Congress. Users can visit the Senate Hub channel to offer their opinions.

Senator Cornyn will address the top responses in a week.
