<p>Appearing exclusively on Sunday&rsquo;s <em>Meet the Press</em>, Speaker Paul Ryan was repeatedly pressed by moderator Chuck Todd to denounce conservative radio talk show hosts Laura Ingraham and Mark Levin over their criticism of the recently-passed omnibus bill and demanded to know how he&rsquo;ll work with President Obama to <strong>&ldquo;lay the groundwork&rdquo;</strong> to end political polarization.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Prior to the interview, Todd ruled that<strong> &ldquo;[i]t would be an understatement to say there is conservative anger over the budget deal agreed to by the new Speaker, Paul Ryan&rdquo; </strong>because <strong>&ldquo;Planned Parenthood and the Affordable Care Act are funded, that there are no restrictions on Syrian and Iraqi refugees and that there are no measures blocking President Obama&#39;s efforts to fight climate change.&rdquo;</strong></p>
