In Washington, anything can be used to make a political point.

Take the latest tweet from a Republican lawmaker on Tuesday, who said she views the closure of the House of Representatives due to snow as a plus for taxpayers.

Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-Kansas) posted a message Twitter account and included a poll to gauge the sentiments of her followers:

Votes canceled today for the House..politicians not in Washington = your pocketbook is safe. You agree? http://twtpoll.com/oj2gal #tcot #gop

Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) declared Monday night that the House would not take votes as a result of large piles of snow that are still clogging the roadways and transit lines in Washington.

The situation might not allow for votes for several days. Some meteorologists are predicting an additional 10 to 20 inches of snow to fall on the Washington area starting on Tuesday.
