    Is this some sort of prank? $182,000 for a QUARTER and $100,000 cash on hand. That’s a fly on an elephants a$%. We are talking Paul Ryan here. I would have not done a press release with these numbers. This is comical.

  2. Terry says:

    Paul “Toady for Trump” Ryan has no credibilty or moral foundation anymore. He has no conviction nor any principles as well. It’s time to dump Ryan and dump career politician Scott Walker in November 2018!
