MOMENTUM: “No Labels stands apart not as a third party, but rather is a movement advocating a shift in focus and intention away from infighting and demagoguery, to civil discourse that is framed by critical thinking. Until now, there have been no political movements in this country based on cooperative, constructive, problem-solving governance,” writes No Labels supporter David Nevins. The momentum for problem solving is building: David Nevins for The Huffington Post: Putting Country Before Party
 
PRESIDENT CLINTON: The former president voiced his support for No Labels in a video that aired at the Meeting to Make America Work!, saying: “We simply can’t afford the partisanship that’s slowing Congress. That’s why I’m grateful for the work No Labels is doing, to increase constructive dialogue and ensure that we can build a stronger America.” Click here to watch the video.
 
WORKING ACROSS THE AISLE: A group of six senators -- three Republican, three Democrat -- is working together to come up with a plan for immigration reform. The White House has made immigration reform a top priority, and Congress is responding. It won’t be easy to find a solution that both parties can agree on, but working together is the best way to start: Rosalind S. Helderman and David Nakamura for The Washington Post: Senators nearing agreement on broad immigration reform proposal
 
IT’S COMMON SENSE: Congress needs incentive to get its work done -- just like a regular person who works for a living. “That’s why “No Budget, No Pay” is a move in the right direction. Why should Americans pay for a Congress that’s dysfunctional? If congressmen had their own skin in the game, they would have more incentive to get to work.” Savannah Morning News: Common-sense rule: No work, no pay

    The Senate Parliamentarian decided that last summer's deal on the debt ceiling and spending caps does not preclude the Senate from taking up other budget resolutions this year. The POLITICO story says: "The ruling could force vulnerable Democrats to cast tough votes that hurt them in November, a situation Reid and other leaders are eager to avoid as they work to protect their fragile majority." Seriously?!

    Although many envisioned the 2012 presidential campaign to be a historic clash of ideas, the race thus far this year seems to revolve around a record level of trivial issues. No Labels Co-Founder Mark McKinnon worries this election may be remembered as the "Bitter Twitter campaign," with, "a furious and relentless exchange of message that aren't much longer or deeper than 140 characters."
