Speaker Paul Ryan was criticized after he pointed to a secretary’s $1.50 weekly increase in take-home pay as a sign of the GOP tax plan’s success https://t.co/DZmVrzvfNX— The New York Times (@nytimes) February 4, 2018
– Rep. Paul Ryan tweeted out an Associated Press article, pointing to a high school secretary's $1.50 increase in salary as a sign of the GOP's tax plan working. “A secretary at a public high school in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, said she was pleasantly surprised her pay went up $1.50 a week ... she said [that] will more than cover her Costco membership for the year,”
– Critics dug into Ryan's comments being out of touch, especially considering the conservative billionare Koch family donated $500,000 to Ryan after the tax bill passed in November.
– Democratic Opponent Randy Bryce made $150,000 in 24 hours off of Ryan's deleted tweet and aims to take him out of office this November.
.@SpeakerRyan Remember "unmasking"? That went great too. How much longer are you going to let @RepDevinNunes make a mockery of his important chairmanship and by implication make you & House GOP leadership look like a weak feckless failure?— Andy Richter (@AndyRichter) February 3, 2018
Paul Ryan's a two-bit casino barker begging busloads of retirees to hear the clunking of nickels in the slot-trays while the mobsters who own the place are banking billions. pic.twitter.com/JsizEFPeli— Ed Solomon (@ed_solomon) February 3, 2018
I feel like people keep forgetting, because of all the other bad things about him, that Paul Ryan is dumb.— Mark Harris (@MarkHarrisNYC) February 3, 2018
Here’s that totally-not-at-all out of touch tweet the spineless megacoward Paul Ryan deleted after someone told him $1.50 a week proves old Nancy’s “crumbs” comment, doesn’t cover a Costco membership, and the whole thing makes him look like a Dickens villain pic.twitter.com/qbQrvTKIvH— Catherynne Valente (@catvalente) February 3, 2018
Honestly on some level I am jealous of Paul Ryan. I think it must be so freeing to be a total sociopath, unburdened by the psychological chains of morals and values. Not caring about anyone but myself and sleeping like a baby every night.— Leslie Grossman (@MissLeslieG) February 3, 2018
