FED UP: Rep. Reid Ribble (R-WI) knows Americans are fed up with Congress. "To change Washington, we've got to change these incentives. Members of Congress need to be held accountable for passing a budget resolution and appropriations bills on time. Yet we receive a paycheck even if we don't fulfill this fundamental responsibility," he writes. Reid J. Ribble for The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel: For Congress, it should be: No budget, no pay
 
DISCONNECT: The disconnect between liberal party activists and moderate voters helps explain why Democrats don't perform better in national elections despite larger numbers nationwide: Ruth Marcus for The Washington Post: Democrats must chase independents to win
 
STAT OF THE DAY: While 23 percent of Americans give their own representatives favorable ratings, only 7 percent think Congress as a whole is doing a good job: Harris Interactive: Job Ratings for Congress Stay Near Historical Lows
 
HONEST DISCUSSION: Americans need to talk about what government should do in a civilized society. "We must hold politicians accountable, but we must be accountable, too." Editorial for The Arizona Daily Sun: Power is ours to fix government

    As GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and President Obama turn their eyes to the general election, things will get ugly. They've got the money, and they've got the willpower to go personal and play dirty. John Heileman writes: "If you thought the Republican nomination tussle was sickeningly, deplorably, appallingly brutish, I have just five words of advice: Avert your eyes now, people." That's why you're a part of No Labels -- we're staying positive while the rest of the political world goes negative.
