Steve King: We shut down government to 'unleash human nature'

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) said this week that he was worried that reopening the government was going to prevent him from continuing to be able to "unleash human nature."

Just before President Barack Obama signed a bill to end a government shutdown and extend the nation's debt limit, KCRG spoke to King and asked him what this meant for the future of the country.

"I want what's best for the long-term best interest of this country," the Iowa Republican explained. "I want it to be on Constitutional underpinnings."

"And I want to continue to unleash human nature," he added. "And I'm afraid we're going the other direction here. And that is troubling to me."
