Unbelievable! Paul Ryan praises $1.50/week tax cut!

Unbelievable! Paul Ryan praises $1.50/week tax cut!
Quote:Paul Ryan Embarrasses Himself

In case Speaker Paul Ryan's (R-WI) Democratic opponent, Randy Bryce, needed an exhibit for his "Paul Ryan is out of touch" commercials, he's now got it. The Speaker, in an attempt to brag about the GOP tax cut, sent out a tweet on Saturday morning reporting the news that a secretary in Pennsylvania noticed that her weekly paycheck has gone up by $1.50. Yes, that decimal is in the right place. Naturally, that sent the Twitterverse into a frenzy, as many mocked Ryan for thinking that a buck fifty is somehow life-changing money, while others used the tweet as an opportunity to observe that $1.50/week is a tiny, tiny drop in the bucket compared to how much someone like the Koch brothers will get back. Clearly recognizing that he blew it, Ryan deleted the tweet. Unfortunately for him, however, many people—including Bryce—had already saved a screen capture:

My check was about $30 more. I appreciate it. But $30 a week does not compensate for the shame and degradation I experience every morning when I read the news.
Trump is so convinced that everything is about him he has convinced his followers that everything is about him.

Yea but still, I don't care if you live in the cheapest most rural state in the country, 30 bucks a week is a joke regardless.

$1, 000,000,000,000 spent in Afghanistan alone. I propose world peace as the best tax cut of all!

A tax cut is irrelevant when the president and congress are working together to subvert the constitution.

How Ryan lives with himself is beyond me.

You have to give the Republicans credit. They spent $14 million prosecuting Bill Clinton's blow job. Now they don't want the tax payers to have to pay for something as frivolous as Trump being tried for obstruction of justice or treason. They're just trying to help the common folks.

It could be that his priorities are so skewed that they're incomprehensible to the taxpayers who have to put up with his nonsense. Honestly, I gave up on expecting the Republicans to have priorities that made sense years ago.
I was born with a gift of laughter and a sense that the world is mad.

So why does he keep getting re-elected? He is up every 2 years, after all. Clearly *someone* is voting for him. Why????

Yep because consensual sex is a far more pressing issue than our enemies wanting to destroy us.
