Can Lawmakers Tweet And Legislate At The Same Time? Vos Experience Suggests "No."

Now we have state legislators tweeting while they should be legislating. 

Tweetmeister Robin Vos, (R-Racine) is enjoying his phone toy (are taxpayers picking up these costs?), but clearly can't legislate and tweet at the same time, as he managed to vote on the losing side of a 14-2 effort to kill the proposed new UW-M School of Public Health.

Public Health? In Milwaukee? Where there is intense poverty, and where swine flu illness and testing was and still is are major issues? 

If you don't understand why siting a school of public health in Milwaukee is a good idea, you don't belong in the legislature.
