Paul Ryan Brags About Giving Public School Employee $1.50

Ryan speaks at a news conference with Republican leaders on Capitol Hill in Washington U.S

Another tweet that spread like wildfire was one by California Lt Gov Gavin Newsom who tweeted a screenshot of Ryan's tweet and wrote, "Guess someone told Paul Ryan you shouldn't go around praising yourself for giving a working person an extra $1.50 a week - because he deleted this tweet".

Ryan's office did not immediately return CNN's request for comment.

"Chip in $1.50 now to help us repeal and replace Ryan permanently this November".

"A secretary at a public high school in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, 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 posted on Twitter on Saturday morning, sharing an Associated Press report about paycheck increases under the $1.5 trillion tax overhaul. Or that hers could have gone up a lot more if you had given them a lot less?

Ryan's Democratic opponent, Randy Bryce, used the blunder as a fund-raising opportunity. Middle-income taxpayers would receive an average tax cut of $930 this year, and those in the top 1 percent would receive an average cut of $51,000. He linked to a fundraising page that suggests a $1.50 donation to his campaign. But yesterday's tweet by House Speaker Paul Ryan is a never witnessed before thing.

Social media users and lawmakers have been blasting Ryan on Twitter following his tweet and delete.

"We'll work an extra 2 mins a day for our $1.50/wk".

Ryan on Saturday posted a Tweet noting the secretary's increase and linking to the AP story. The tax bill cost almost $1.5 trillion dollars, while the teacher in question is only seeing $1.50 extra in her weekly paycheck.

Former George W. Bush ethics lawyer, Richard W. Painter said that Ryan "should be ashamed of himself" for publishing the tweet.

Earlier this week, Republicans attacked House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., when she called the payouts after the tax bill "crumbs".
