Being a local businessman and homeowner in Mr. Boehner’s 8th Ohio District, I feel my voice is being heard in congress. That’s because Mr. Boehner is pro-business. He knows that businesses like mine are the backbone of the economy and that taxes and regulation are literally squeezing the life out of small business.
Barack Obama surely has a lead on Twitter with 144,000 followers.
With efforts from people like John Boehner, and Top Conservatives on Twitter #tCOT, TopConservativesOnTwitter.org aka #TCOC, the conservative voice will be heard. We have a lot of work to do. Currently, Brooks Bayne @BrooksBayne is the #TCOC having 20,488 followers at last count.
All told, there are very few republican congressmen on this list or on Twitter to say the least. I am calling all republican congressman to post comments on twitter. Keep your constituency informed.
(John Boehner is rated 77th on #TCOT)
