By Former Senators George Voinovich (R-OH) and Evan Bayh (D-IN) Unfortunately, both today and while we were in office, Congress has simply been unable to deliver on one of its most fundamental responsibilities -- passing, on time, the spending bills necessary to fund and run the government.
There is one group in Washington that believes it is in the best position to bridge the partisan divide hampering many of the decisions in Congress. No Labels is composed of lawmakers and policy leaders of both major political parties.
How can you, the average voter, address this problem when a vote for either party is a vote for one of two sharply divided parties causing the problem? The answer may lie with a citizen movement started in December 2010, initially encompassing 1,000 people nationally, today numbering over 100,000 and headed to an expected million-plus members in 2012. I am referring to the No Labels Movement.
