“A secretary at a public high school in Lancaster, PA, 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,” Ryan’s tweet read.
Ryan used the tweet to laud the benefits of Republicans’ #GOPtaxscam. The Republicans understand they must attempt to convince the middle class that their budget busting $1.5 trillion tax cut will benefit working class voters. Ryan immediately got bashed on social media by his insensitive tweet and quickly deleted it. Ryan discovered that most of the public doesn’t agree with his boasting about a $78 per year increase in wages.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., tweeted in response to Ryan.
