How to Contact Representatives and Senators?

skine (1524819) writes "Based on a post from GumphMaster, I believe that a bill such as Section 54 of Australia's Constitution would benefit the US.

The proposed law which appropriates revenue or moneys for the ordinary annual services of the Government shall deal only with such appropriation.

However, any attempt to contact my Senators or Congressman yield only a notice that their offices are closed to email, phone, and mail until the shutdown is ended. Granted, I wouldn't expect my Congressman or Senators to actually read or listen to any email, voicemail message, or letter I send under normal circumstances. So, really, how do I get the attention of my representatives in Congress?"
