|With all that cash from the Koch brothers, Paul Ryan smiles as the working class picks up the change.|
Ryan is facing possibly one of the most competitive races in his political career. He and many Republicans fear the inept leader's low job approvals could cost them the majority in Congress.
Ryan got $500,000 from the Koch brothers soon after he and Republicans passed tax refor,.
Ryan once again stepped in it. He posted on social media his thoughts on the Republican-led law that change tax reform.
The Jobs and Tax Cuts Act is a law signed by Donald J. Trump that realigned the tax code and gave corporation a tax cut. The remaining goes to most working class Americans.
It is extremely unpopular with the public. Even though most working class Americans will see increases in their paychecks, the cost of living is risinf and adjustments to personal savings is declining.
|The Lancaster school worker that Ryan tweeted about became an overnight celebrity.|
But you couldn't tell that to Trump, Ryan and the Republicans.
Ryan tweeted his remarks about a school secretary from Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
"A secretary at a public school in Lancaster, PA, said she was pleasantly suprised 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 before it was scrubbed.
He didn't get the sarcasm of the post.
He promptly was slammed by lawmakers and his opponent in his competitive race back home.
The economy is not the stock market. It’s not the unemployment rate. And it’s not GDP. It’s you. And if you’re only getting $1.50 a week from the #GOPTaxScam, it’s not working for you. cc: @SpeakerRyan— Rep. Eric Swalwell (@RepSwalwell) February 4, 2018
Moments ago, @PRyan deleted this tweet after we told him just how out of touch he was. Show Paul Ryan what you think of his tax bill. Chip in $1.50 now to help us repeal and replace Ryan permanently this November.https://t.co/c3Fii4Q0Jn— Randy Bryce (@IronStache) February 3, 2018

Julia Ketchum didn't expect to become an overnight celebrity.
She didn't even know Ryan used her post as a statement for the tax law.
She appreciate the fans and new found celebrity.
Joy Reid lets the speaker have it.
