Nationally syndicated radio show host Mark Levin said on his Dec. 1 show that Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as Speaker of the House will not help Congress any more than former Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) did.

“He’s no better than Boehner,” remarked Levin. “He can talk all he wants.”

Here is the transcript of Levin’s comments:

“And Paul Ryan with his new Mark Levin beard – sorry Paul, that’s uh, it’s not working for you – but in any event, he’s no better than Boehner. He can talk all he wants.

“Oh, yes, yes, the surrogates, the pretend Republicans, the surrogates they’ll be all over the media telling us how fascinating and wonderful this is. ‘It’s a new day! Look at this: they’re working together. And Paul’s such a good guy.

“Brian Darling, also writing at Conservative Review:

‘House and Republican Senate leaders are preparing for yet another surrender to President Obama. Establishment members are derisively referring to some Republicans – that would be constitutional conservatives – as the “hope yes, vote no” caucus in an attempt to shame them into voting for a giant appropriations bill they have not been allowed to so much as read, let alone write.’

“This is the new House of Representatives under Paul Ryan.

We’re going to go to regular order, kids. Oh, yes we are. We’re going to regular order.’ Oh, what a swell guy. Plus, Romney likes him.

“Now that Congress is back in session, Republican leaders in the House and the Senate are working behind closed doors to put to bed a massive $1.15 trillion omnibus appropriations bill.

“This bill is expected to be carried over the finish line by Congressional Democrats because it does not contain ANY serious reforms that might force a distinction between the policies of Congressional Republicans and Obama.

“There will be no fights, no controversial reforms, only an agreement that Congress needs to spend more than they agreed to under the sequester caps of 2011 budget deal.”
