Vitter, Legislature, Louisiana Politics Today On Twitter
Written by 

Twitter today: Louisiana Sen. Vitter pointing out that a CBO plan shows why Obama and Harry Reid should embrace "conservative spending cuts plans".   New felony charges against former New Orleans Public Belt exec, Jim Bridger. Legislature saying goodbye to Louisiana Medical Center oversight. 

Every once in a while, I like to share with you some of the people or organizations I follow or tweets I find on Twitter and also comments made on Facebook.

Both online social network forums are changing the way we communicate with one another but affecting the ways we view the world and current events.

Here are some of the latest tweets today.
