Oh, yes, they did.

Can you help us get 1 retweet for each day that’s gone by since Senate Democrats last passed a budget? HINT: We need 1,300. #tcot

Ah, the power of Twitter! Senate Republicans used Twitter to get the word out yesterday, when trying to remind people that Senate Democrats have not passed a budget in 1,300 days.

Senator Thune joined in.

Today marks 1300 days since @senatedems passed a formal budget. Our nat’l debt has increased by $5+ trillion since then. #WeCantWait

And other Twitter users helped with the retweets, too.

i hope all of you have had a chance to RT this from @senate_gops —> bit.ly/UdKPiy

Oh, snap. It’s funny, because it’s true.

They are over 1,000 retweets right now.
