23 Targets in House for Tweeting

Listed below are TWENTY-THREE NOVEMBER FOOLS, Congress members who we are targeting based on their state's high unemployment rate and the amount of money raised by their opponents so far.  Here are their names, their state's unemployment rate, and their twitter handles, along with the twitter handle of their opponent. 

Here is a recent article that has comments from many of our targets:  http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2014/04/03/the-senate-is-going-to-pass-an-unemployment-insurance-extension-today-the-house-is-unimpressed/


Please 1)  use the hashtag #RenewUI   2) include our website AA4U.org  3) use phrases "Extend Unemployment Benefits", "November Fools", and/or "We Demand A Vote", and 4) include their opponent's twitter handle for a probable retweet!

An Unemployment Benefit Extension is now on auto-pilot to pass the Senate on Monday.  Our deadline now is April 10,  after that the House goes on a two-week break and any hopes for the 5-month extension will be dead.  http://blogs.rollcall.com/wgdb/unemployment-extension-deal-falls-apart-final-vote-monday/
