US House Speaker Paul Ryan came under fire Saturday over a tweet that framed a worker's $1.50 per week pay increase as an impressive result of his party's massive tax cut plan, US media reported.

Ryan's tweet, now deleted, told of a secretary featured in an Associated Press report who was "pleasantly surprised" by the marginal pay rise, drawing condemnation from critics who accused the politician of being out of touch with lower-income Americans.

"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 wrote, sharing a link to the complete article.

But Democrats, who were quick to round on Ryan, pointed out that wealthier Americans and big corporations benefit much more from the tax cuts.

"Wells Fargo, fresh off of defrauding millions of Americans, gets $3.4 billion," retorted Minnesota congressman Keith Ellison.

"Paul Ryan deleted his embarrassing tweet of a blatant admission because he and Republicans don’t want you to know the truth: the #GOPTaxScam is a gift to corporate America and the top 1% at your expense," Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted.

"He also doesn’t want you to know he got $500.000.00 from the Koch family," she added, referencing a campaign donation Ryan received after the House of Representatives passed their version of the tax reform bill in November, according to data published by ProPublica.
Wow these alt right idiots are getting dumber by the day.

Maybe this gaffe was intentional to distract from the alt rights failed attempt at undercutting Mueller with the "memo"?? =D> :^o :^o

Trump supporters don't want govt telling them what to do, but they are perfectly ok with corporate giants getting billions and influencing them on how to live...

Dumb and dumber... #-o

I think Twitter will be the death of this country. Or at least contribute to it.

Wow these alt right idiots are getting dumber by the day.

Maybe this gaffe was intentional to distract from the alt rights failed attempt at undercutting Mueller with the "memo"?? =D> :^o :^o

AND just how much money is Nancy Pelosi worth AND where did it come from?

Just take her, "long-term", salary all added up and subtract it from what she is worth and ASK her sorry ass where the difference came from here is all??

She will, "bloviate", and, "piss and moan", and NOT answer your question! I bet the 1st word out of her CSing mouth will be, "WELL!!"....
