On his show Monday, nationally syndicated radio show host Mark Levin lamented the direction that Mitch McConnell and John Boehner are leading this nation. They “are a disgrace,” and they are “endangering this country” by delivering the trade deal to Obama, said Levin.
“These men are a disgrace. They’re endangering this country,” Levin said on his July 27 broadcast. “It’s not Obama alone. It’s the Republican phony leaders in the House and the Senate, too.”
Here is a transcript of what Levin said:
“I want to remind you that Mitch McConnell delivered this deal to Barack Obama, too. What’s going on now for the next sixty days is all well and good.
“But, the requirement that 67 senators or two-thirds of the senators present during the debate, that two thirds of the Senators present, that’s what the Constitution says, have to vote to ratify a treaty. The fact that that’s been written out of the Constitution for these purposes, the fact that now they have to have a veto-proof Senate and House, which means two-thirds of the Senate and House have to vote against the deal.
“Mitch McConnell delivered that to Obama. John Boehner delivered that to Obama. Mitch McConnell delivered the phony trade deal to Obama. Boehner delivered the phony trade deal to Obama.
“Boehner delivered, excuse me, not yet. McConnell delivered the Export-Import Bank to Obama. McConnell took the power of the purse off the table. Boehner took the power of the purse off the table.
“These men are a disgrace. They’re endangering this country. It’s not Obama alone. It’s the Republican phony leaders in the House and the Senate, too.”
