TechPresident had a nice summary of something that I ran into this afternoon: many congressional sites went down just as voting on the $700B bailout wrapped up. I was trying to find the roll call at the Clerk’s offfice, which eventually did appear. (Gotta love the bailout’s title: “To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to provide earnings assistance and tax relief to members of the uniformed services, volunteer firefighters, and Peace Corps volunteers, and for other purposes.” I’d certainly have supported $700B for the Peace Corps!) Oddly, many sites, including house.gov are still down.
