Your Thoughts on the Stimulus? Here's Your Direct Line to Congress

A month ago, we announced that Congress has come to YouTube - you can now find your Senator's and Representative's YouTube channels at the Senate Hub and the House Hub. Now, we're making it even easier for you to engage with your leaders and tell them what you think.

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.

Today, we're kicking off with Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) who wants to know what you think about the economic stimulus package recently passed by Congress:

Do you think the stimulus package will succeed in creating more jobs for Americans? Was there something missing from the package? Head over to the Senate Hub to make your voice heard, then check back in a week to hear what Senator Cornyn has to say about the top responses.

Finally, this is the first time we've tried using Google Moderator on a YouTube channel, so let us know what you think.
