The health-care bill’s first tax, which targets tanning salons, started yesterday. Congressional Republicans are burning with indignation, and Republican senators John Barrasso and Tom Coburn, from @SenateDoctors, are using an Alabama tanning-salon owner to champion their cause.

In other congressional Twitterverse news, Dems gloat about their congressional baseball victory Tuesday night, members shamelessly ask for campaign contributions, Skype is controversial, and drama follows the House vote on financial-regulation reform.
