Rep. Labrador: Senate Republicans 'pussyfooting'

Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, told CNN's Jake Tapper on Monday that he worries Senate Republicans will again kick the can down the road when it comes to the debt ceiling, a move that could hurt their chances of taking back the upper chamber in the upcoming 2014 elections.

"The problem with Senate Republicans is that they always want to have a fight the next time," Labrador said. "They always want to wait until the next time. If they continue to pussyfoot around like they do in these battles, they're never going to be able to take back the Senate."
