Congressional common sense?

Skype is a practically free video-conferencing service Congress could be using to communicate with constituents, but it is forbidden, so members instead use taxpayer money to conduct video-conferencing without the common application, undoubtedly costing more money and frustration for all parties involved.
The implementation of Skype would no doubt have to overcome some security concerns, but the saved money and connection with constituents is probably worth the security effort. What's better than government problems being solved by free software? More of this, please.
