Paul Ryan does the Sunday news circuit; so what’s the plan, sir?

Paul RyanNewly minted House Speaker Paul Ryan vowed to unite Republicans and be different from John Boehner.

“I cannot pick up where John Boehner left off,” Ryan told Fox News Sunday host John Roberts on Sunday. “I can’t do things the same way. We have to do things differently.”

Ryan was critical of the process in which the House passed a two-year budget deal that included spending increases last week as well saying that it “stunk.”

“We fight over tactics because we don’t have a vision,” he said. “Leadership presented us with a bill a few days beforehand.”

But, he said, he wouldn’t attack fellow party members in the House or Senate over it.

“I don’t think we throw any Republicans under the bus,” he said. “I was not asked to dis-unify the Republican Party in the Congress. “

Ryan also vowed that he would work to get a consensus on any immigration reform bill presented and not “cobble together” enough of a majority to get past the Freedom Caucus.

“On immigration in particular, we can’t trust this president on immigration reform. He’s already proven untrustworthy because he tried to circumvent the legislative process with his executive orders. I think, if we can get consensus on border security and ensuring our enforcement — fine.

“But on these other issues, this President has proven himself untrustworthy. “
