    Paul Ryan slammed over tweet praising tax cut for $1.50 pay rise
    https://verizon.yahoo.com/news/paul-ryan-slammed-over-tweet-praising-tax-cut-061603496.html

    Washington (AFP) - 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.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The increase in gas prices will more then crush those hopes of a Costco membership
    Ryan gets my vote for Dope of the
    Week!

    Ya, let's avoid the fact that the average working citizen will gain $25.00 per week in their paycheck, and instead focus on some idiotic tweet and meme.
    :duh:

    People aren’t as stupid as Pelosi. They’ll know looking at their pay checks, advice from people who haven’t worked or paid taxes in a decade isn’t necessary.
    The withholding change isn’t required until Feb. 15th by the way.

    Pelosi will regret her crumbs comment. That will be used in the midterms.

    Next year's tax return filings is where the real difference should be, not in weekly take home now.

    Motley Fool claims the average American purchases 656 gallons of gasoline per year. The price of gas is over 50 cents a gallon higher this year .
    Meaning your spending over $328 more to fuel your car since Trump.
    And it went up again!
    Looks like we're in the hole to me
    What do you think?

    Anything else go up that you noticed?
    Post it here.

    If Democrats had their way they’d take your whole check.

    Obama didn't make anyone's check larger, not even the $100.00 per month that Trump has given back to us. Obama killed out paychecks.

    Hannity is still looking for all those terrorist camps in the USA
    Maybe Trump can help him out now that he's commander and chief

    $100.00 per month x 12 months = $1,200.00 minus the $328.00 for extra gas, and we are still $672.00 better off with Trump.
    That's what I think know.

    Only weeks ago, you leftists we're still saying that this record high market was because of Obama. Looks like this drop isn't his fault though.
    You flip flopping hypocrites crack me up.

    You might want to take that issue up with your State legislators the Federal Government Tax is 18.4 cents per gallon and has not been increased since 1993.
