Someone must have told Paul Ryan this was a ridiculous PR nightmare that made him look stupid and/or evil, or he had the rare moment of clarity, because he deleted the tweet immediately. Yes, well, but everything lives forever on the internet. Twitter destroyed the floppy-eared, poor-hating, always condescending Wisconsin representative.
Paul Ryan is boasting about how the #TaxScam is saving someone $75/year.
Not the Onion.

The gall it takes for Paul Ryan to gleefully tweet about a school secretary getting $1.50, after he received $500,000 from one donor for passing the GOP tax scam. pic.twitter.com/2mQst5U7vy

Paul Ryan's a two-bit casino barker begging busloads of retirees to hear the clunking of nickels in the slot-trays while the mobsters who own the place are banking billions. pic.twitter.com/JsizEFPeli

That extra $1.50 Paul Ryan gave me a week in 2018 was totally worth giving up my mom's Medicaid.

Paul Ryan is literally tweeting about a woman who had a pay raise of $6 a month, a proof the Trump economy is working.
While the Trump pay raise was millions.

i think paul ryan deleted that "wow! $1.50 extra a week" tweet. which would make it one of the smartest political decisions he's made.

PLEASE DO NOT RETWEET THIS deleted tweet. It would make American hero Paul Ryan sad. pic.twitter.com/vyRY472cMG

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.
He also doesn’t want you to know he got $500.000.00 from the Koch family. pic.twitter.com/ENXxASfAMP

Actually, since $1.50 is roughly the price of a small fries at McDonalds, I think we have our campaign slogan here: "Let them eat French fries!" https://t.co/c2TO6JuPbF

Why bother watching the Super Bowl? It only has four quarters and Paul Ryan gave me six.

Maybe Paul Ryan thinks $1.50 is a good amount of money because that’s how much his haircuts cost.
