How Can You Represent Me if You Won't Take My Emails?

Don't bother emailing your U.S. Representative right now. I just tried to email mine to urge him to support HR 1424 (and S 558) that will end insurance companies’ discrimination against those with mental illness or addiction problems. The official Write Your Representative site gave me this error message:

The House of Representatives is currently experiencing an extraordinarily high amount of email traffic. The Write Your Representative function is therefore intermittently available. While we realize communicating to your Members of Congress is critical, we suggest attempting to do so at a later time, when demand is not so high. System engineers are working to resolve this issue and we appreciate your patience.

P.S. Apparently I wasn't the only person to notice this.
