>From the website:

CommitteeCaller.com is a site that allows one person to target an entire
congressional committee over the phone. The web application utilizes
the open source Asterisk PBX system to connect you to every senator
or house member on a particular committee. No more digging around the
'net entering zip-codes to retrieve phone numbers of representatives --
CommitteeCaller.com automates the tedium of repetitively dialing your
favorite politicians.

Select a committee, enter in your phone number and click "Put me
in touch with democracy!" and you'll be called by our system and
sequentially patched through to the front office of each member on that
committee. You can even rate how each call went -- information that will
enable us to rank representatives on how accountable and responsive they
are to their constituents.
