    Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick
    “At the county level, the process of trying to get to consensus made all of us better elected officials and better representatives of a diverse community. Of the ten budgets we passed during my ten years as a commissioner, nine were unanimous budgets. I always look back on that tenth budget and think, ‘Did I try hard enough? Was there something else I could have done?’ Washington needs more of that kind of thinking—and that kind of collaboration and agreement on goals.”

    Rep. Lynn Jenkins
    "...We really can overcome partisan divides in Washington if we work together in a collaborative way toward a common goal. The way to do that is to put people before politics and communicate effectively. Even when Democrats controlled everything in Washington, three Republicans were able to get something done. People at home don’t believe that’s possible in today’s environment. But if we look past the politics and put people first, it is.”

    Rep. Reid Ribble
    “To fix these big problems, we have to do it together. We have to have positions of agreement where we can get to 218, 60, and 1—and make something better for the American people.”

    Rep. Peter Welch
    “One of the highest principles all of us claim is a commitment to getting things done for our country. So how do we do that? Like we do in Vermont, let’s focus on the things we can agree on, not just the differences between us. It’s an old-fashioned way of working together that we must restore in Congress.”
