tweet, which shared an anecdote about a school secretary whose pay went up $1.50 a week, struck many people as being extremely out of touch with the lives of real low-income families.

Plenty of people - and companies - are seeing a meaningful change in their pay because of the tax bill.


Costco is a American budget wholesaler of home furniture and appliances, with an annual membership costing $60 per year. Why the House Speaker made a decision to highlight Julia Ketchum of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and her $1.50 a week savings, the world may never know.

Ryan's office was not immediately available to comment over the weekend.

It seemed like a safe move: Paul Ryan was tweeting out an Associated Press story detailing how.


Ryan also posted a quote from a man the AP said "got an extra $200 in his paycheck last week, which he said will help offset a $300 increase in the cost of his health insurance".

Millions of dollars compares very favorably against $1.50 a week, as people on Twitter are now discovering. Writing on Twitter, Pelosi also cited Ryan's receipt of a $500,000 donation from the Republican benefactors the Koch Brothers following the passing of the tax bill in November.

Because of the recent tax reforms, Americans will receive small tax cuts; however, the lion's share of the cuts will go to major corporations. But the tweet was quickly mocked and Wisconsin Republican deleted his tweet within hours.
