The New York Times told readers to contact their senators and lobby against the Republican tax bill in a series of tweets from its opinion account Wednesday.

“This morning, the Times editorial board is tweeting here to urge the Senate to reject a tax bill that hurts the middle class & the nation’s fiscal health. ,” the NYT opinion account tweeted.

The paper called out Republican senators by name and requested people contact their offices to call for a vote against the bill, which is expected in the Senate as early as this week.

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said Wednesday that the tweets should make people “stop pretending that the NYT isn’t a political organization.”
