    I head about this on the radio while I was driving. Just the part about $1.50 and that liberals were jumping on it. Well, you can never trust anything they say but I thought, "next thing you know they'll all be donating $1.50 to Paul Ryan's opponent.

    And what do you know........

    Thousands donate $1.50 to Paul Ryan’s opponent after embarrassing tax tweet


    By Matthew Chapman | February 5, 2018


    House Speaker Paul Ryan had a rough weekend.

    On Saturday, Ryan tried to dispute the charge that the GOP tax bill was a handout to corporations and billionaires at the expense of the middle class, by tweeting about a Lancaster, Pennsylvania, high school secretary whose take-home pay increased by $1.50 a week. It was an incredibly patronizing remark that drew immediate backlash and caused him to delete the tweet in humiliation.

    But the internet is forever, and activists promptly made the $1.50 pay raise a rallying cry in favor of his Democratic opponent, Racine ironworker and union leader Randy Bryce.

    According to a spokesperson from Bryce’s office, speaking to Shareblue Media, “From Saturday through 1 p.m. on Sunday, we raised $130,000 from 10,600 contributions.” Furthermore, 5,100 of those contributions were $1.50.

    It is clear that Ryan’s laughable attempt to pretend the tax scam would benefit the middle class has completely backfired.

    What idiots. And they think it's so cute and funny.

    However, it shows their idiocy and how juvenile they actually are.

    Another way to look at it. The DNC has downgraded their donations request. Last time I checked them, the least you could give was $5.

    Guess the best they can get is a $1.5

    Another way to look at it is the war-chest size, which does count a lot.
