Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R., Fla.) told MSNBC's Jose Diaz-Balart that Congress should vote for a new authorization to defeat all terrorist groups that pose a threat to Americans.
"We are shirking our responsibility by not voting on this," Ros-Lehtinen said.
"The president says he's using this certain section of the Constitution and also Bush's authorization from many years ago. He can get a new authorization."
Ros-Lehtinen said the new authorization should include "the terror group of the day," be it ISIL, Al-Nusra Front, or others.
"We've got to kill them like cockroaches," Ros-Lehtinen said. "And like the saying goes, and then there goes two."
