Speaker Ryan praised $1.50 pay raiseU.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan deleted a tweet on Saturday cheering a $1.50 increase to a Pennsylvania school secretary’s weekly pay because of a $1.5 trillion tax cut after it drew criticism that he was out of touch with ordinary Americans.

Ryan’s tweet had linked an Associated Press story on Americans reaping the benefits of the tax cut. The story cited as an example, Julia Ketchum, a secretary at a public high school in Lancaster, PA, who said she was “pleasantly surprised her pay went up $1.50 a week.”

TVNL Comment: There are no words.  It's just amazing that anyone other than the very rich would ever vote for Republicans.  But it seems there are masochists who enjoy the pain of getting nothing and giving away everything.
