"You know, we meet every week," Congressman Matheson said. "How many meetings take place in Washington where people in both parties sit at a table together? I'm not sure I know of any besides this one. So, I think it's a real positive sign that a group of people wants to sit down and have conversations about solving problems. I'm confident that's what most of America wants, and I think No Labels represents an opportunity to see that happen."
Cooper introduced the bill in December after one of his Nashville constituents asked him why Congress could miss its deadlines while the public had to pay taxes on time, he said. Tennessee Republican Reps. Diane Black and Scott DesJarlais are among the bill’s 34 House co-sponsors.
The No Labels Problem Solvers coalition, co-chaired by former Governor Jon Huntsman, will hold a Rally to Make Government Work! at Upper Senate Park at the Capitol.
