No Labels to Host Discussion with Independent U.S. Senate Candidate Angus King and Eliot Cutler on How to Fix a Broken Congress

More than 100 Citizens to Attend April 27 Panel on Making Congress Work!

On Friday, April 27 at 5:30 p.m at the University of New England’s Portland Campus, No Labels, the grassroots movement of over half a million Republicans, Democrats and independents dedicated to making our government work again, will host a panel on ways to fix gridlock and hyper-partisanship in Congress. No Labels is building on momentum for its No Budget, No Pay Act and other reform proposals from its 12-point Make Congress Work! action plan. The No Budget, No Pay Act would withhold congressional pay if members of Congress fail to pass spending bills and the budget on time.

Press can RSVP to this event by contacting Sarah Feldman at press@nolabels.org or (215) 313-9126.

“As I travel around Maine, I hear every day from citizens who are fed up with gridlock in Washington. It’s why I am running for the Senate seat,” said King. “The discussion around No Budget, No Pay is an important one to have as we search for solutions to complex problems. It's very clear that it is time to move Congress from point-scoring to problem solving, and I look forward to discussing the No Labels common sense proposals to make Congress work.”

“Almost no one believes Congress is functioning as it should, but No Labels is the only group out there with a smart, common sense plan to fix it,” said former independent candidate for governor and No Labels Co-Founder Eliot Cutler. “Senator Snowe’s recent retirement gave Maine people a special insight into the consequences of partisan politics in Washington. Citizens in Maine and across the country need to stand up, seize back from the hyper-partisans our political process and demand the solutions that will get the country back on track, and that’s what this event is all about.”

No Labels is a group of Republicans, Democrats and independents who want our government to work again. For more information on the April 27 event, Make Congress Work! action plan, or to arrange an interview with a No Labels co-founder, please contact Sarah Feldman at press@nolabels.org or (215) 313-9126.

    Yesterday Rep. Paul Gosar became a co-sponsor of the No Labels-backed No Budget, No Pay Act (H.R. 3643/S. 1981), which would suspend pay for members of Congress if they fail to pass a concurrent budget resolution and all 12 annual spending bills before the start of the fiscal year.

    Sometimes it seems America can't agree on much. But when the country's transportation sector is unsure if it will have money after March 31, everyone can agree it's time for action. "The push to get a bill passed by March 31, when current legislation for infrastructure expires, has made for strange bedfellows. Supporters include the hotel, food and retail industries, hospitals, trade associations for engineers and cement-makers, local governments and even religious and civil-rights groups." It's time to stop these temporary fixes.

    What do Reps. Lois Capps (D-CA) and Ron Paul (R-TX) have in common? Not much. In fact, it’d be tough to find two more different members of Congress. But there is at least one thing they do agree on: the No Budget, No Pay Act. They are part of a growing list of bipartisan bill co-sponsors. Is your member of Congress among them?
