Labrador on NBC: Minorities Should Move to Idaho Where Minorities Get Elected 

""We're talking about two cents of every dollar spent in Washington, D.C., that had to be cut. We're borrowing between 35 cents and 42 cents, every single year, of every dollar. And we're worried about two cents of every dollar."

Idaho Republican Congressman Raul Labrador was one of the few U.S. House Representatives who didn't go home this past weekend. But he surfaced in a familiar setting.

Labrador appeared on NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday, his fifth visit to the program. Labrador also visited ABC's This Week With George Stephanopoulos in December 2012.

The no-surprise grist for the Sunday morning mill was the standoff over the sequestration cuts, which went into effect early Saturday morning, threatening federal funding to scores of departments and agencies, including the military, health and welfare, and education.

"Think about the families, in the last four or five years, that had to cut spending," Labrador told Meet the Press host David Gregory. ""We're talking about two cents of every dollar spent in Washington, D.C., that had to be cut. We're borrowing between 35 cents and 42 cents, every single year, of every dollar. And we're worried about two cents of every dollar."

Labrador also accused President Barack Obama of political gamesmanship surrounding the cuts, which are expected to become severe in the next 30 days.
