Charles Rangel (@cbrangel) January 18, 2013
Oh, there’s a picture attached? He isn’t, is he?
Twitter announced today that all 100 members of the Senate and 90 percent of the House membership have Twitter accounts, and it looks like many of our representatives are getting the hang of this social networking thing, what with dueling hashtags like #My2K and #SpendingIsTheProblem. To be honest, we didn’t think Charlie Rangel was the type to use a Star Wars meme to argue against the GOP’s offer of a three-month debt ceiling increase in exchange for a Senate budget, but we learn something new every day.
How do Rangel’s followers feel about his office dragging Admiral Akbar into America’s budget mess? Reviews are mixed.
Will the Force be with the GOP in the debt ceiling battle? It looks like we’ll find out next week.
House formally plans debate & vote on conditional debt ceiling increase for Wednesday, January 23.—
