House Speaker Paul Ryan is facing criticism Saturday after tweeting a report referencing a woman from Pennsylvania who saw an increase of $1.50 on her weekly paycheck stemming from the recently passed GOP tax-reform bill.

In the tweet, Ryan included a link to an AP report describing how some people in the workforce have seen more take-home pay coming from the new withholding guidelines as the result of the bill’s passage.

“A Secretary at a public high school in Lancaster, PA, said she was pleasantly surprised her pay went up $1.50 a week…she said she [that] will cover her Costco membership for the year.”
