Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) didn't get a chance to voice her concerns about the medical device tax during yesterday's Senate hearing, taking instead to Twitter to express her opposition in 140 characters or less.

Fellow Sens. Pat Toomey (R-Penn.), Al Franken (D-Minn.) and Dan Coats (R-Ind.) each took turns at the podium decrying the medical device tax and calling for its repeal during a Senate hearing on the new continuing budget resolution initiative. Meanwhile, Ayotte sent a series of tweets about the harm the tax could do to innovation and business in the Granite State.
