The passing of health care reform in Washington, D.C., last night has sparked strong emotions from politicians, both Democrats and Republicans.
After some strong, intense words from both sides in the chamber last night, many key lawmakers hit the press circuit this morning - appearing on morning shows and cable news shows to share their thoughts. But the intense sentiments aren't ending there - lawmakers are making their thoughts known to their constituents on Twitter. Below is a sampling of the latest tweets from those on the Hill:

Here’s a look at some of the stories CNN.com reporters are working on Monday:
Health care – The House of Representatives passed a measure overhauling the U.S. medical system late Sunday, delivering a historic victory to President Obama, who had made it his No. 1 domestic priority. The bill passed in a 219-212 vote after more than a year of bitter partisan debate. All 178 Republicans opposed it, along with 34 Democrats. The bill will be sent to Obama's desk to be signed Tuesday.
While Sunday night's vote was a landmark moment, the health care reform fight is far from over. Among the questions being asked: What does the bill mean for you and when will you start feeling its impact? What does it mean for your business? What does Obama's executive order on abortion funding that helped bring some Democrats in line mean? What happens when the bill goes to the Senate – will it turn into a ping-pong match of roadblocks? Will there be political consequences for Democrats or Republicans come midterm elections? And what does this mean for Obama and his agenda? Is it his second wind, or has he spent all his political capital on this one issue? We'll also be looking for reactions from Americans on both sides of the issue as well as insurers and doctors.
President Barack Obama will sign a landmark $875 billion health care reform bill into law at the White House on Tuesday, according to two Democratic officials familiar with the planning.
The bill passed the House of Representatives late Sunday night. It was approved by the Senate in December. A separate package of changes passed by the House on Sunday still needs to be approved by the Senate.

Rep. Bart Stupak: The Democratic congressman was speaking on the House floor Sunday night, shortly after the chamber passed the sweeping health care reform bill with his help, when someone yelled "baby killer." Members of Congress groaned, and someone shouted, "Who said that?"
Stupak had opposed the bill over its abortion language until he reached a deal with the White House on Sunday. Just days earlier, Stupak, D-Michigan, was a hero of anti-abortion House Republicans who opposed the bill.
After he announced his support for health care reform legislation, an organization opposing abortion rights withdrew an award it had planned to present Stupak. The Susan B. Anthony List had chosen Stupak to receive the "Defender of Life" award at the "Campaign for Life Gala" Wednesday in the nation's capital.

The morning after the House voted to pass a landmark health care reform bill opposed by all Republicans the GOP had a new goal in its sights: Fire Nancy Pelosi.
Now that the House has passed the Senate's health care reform bill and a package meant to reconcile differences between the House and Senate bills, the next step is for members of the Senate to sign off on those changes.
That won't be as easy as it sounds.

President Barack Obama plans to hit the road this week to start aggressively selling the benefits of the health care overhaul and give nervous Democratic lawmakers some political cover across the country, according to three Democratic officials familiar with the plans.
President Barack Obama said Sunday night that the passage of health care reform proves Americans "are still a people capable of doing big things."
He said the outcome was "not a victory for any one party. ... It's a victory for the American people and it's a victory for common sense."
"This is what change looks like," he said.
The House of Representatives on Sunday passed a major package of changes to the health care reform bill.
The package passed in a 220-211 vote. All 178 Republicans opposed it, along with 33 Democrats.
The changes, which must be approved by the Senate, would increase the total cost of the bill in its first 10 years from $875 billion to $940 billion.
