  • Ryan Celebrates School Secretary's '$1.50 A Week' Paycheck Increase From Tax Bill

Ryan was put to shame on Twitter Saturday after he tweeted and deleted his praises over the tiny pay raise a secretary received due to the GOP tax cut.

"A secretary at a public high school in Lancaster, PA, said she was pleasantly surprised her pat went up $1.50 a week...she said (that) will more than cover her Costco membership for the year", was what Ryan had written.

Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted: "Paul Ryan deleted his embarrassing tweet. because he and Republicans don't want you to know the truth: (the tax cut) is a gift to corporate America and the top 1% at your expense".

In the words of Michael Scott, "Boom".

She said she would use the additional weekly earnings to cover the cost of her yearly Costco membership.

In total, Ketchum will receive $78 more a year.


Ryan's opponent in the 2018 congressional elections, Randy Bryce, also responded to the tweet, taking the opportunity to try to juice his own fundraising efforts.

Zach Moller, a senior policy analyst at the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, noted that if gains from the tax cut were evenly distributed across all Americans, each person would see an extra $446 per year.

House Speaker Paul Ryan deleted this tweet Saturday amid criticism on social media.

In a tweet, Ryan linked to an Associated Press article detailing a handful of Americans who are enjoying bigger paychecks thanks to the Republican tax law that went into effect January 1.

Whoever sent that tweet from Ryan's account, whether it was him or a hapless staffer, has to be feeling a little sheepish right now. "Chip in $1.50 now to help us repeal and replace Ryan permanently this November". But yesterday's tweet by House Speaker Paul Ryan is a never witnessed before thing. Screenshots were shared by national media outlets, politicians and numerous other Twitter users. "Can we have our 1.5 TRILLION back now?" another wrote.
