Snowe’s Retirement Further Proof Congress Is Broken

No Labels Commends Senator For Years of Service, Decries The Hyper-Partisanship Forcing Out Effective Leaders

No Labels released the following statement on today’s announcement by three-term Maine Senator Olympia Snowe of her decision to retire from the U.S. Senate.

“No Labels shares Senator Snowe’s frustration with the polarization and gridlock that is gripping Capitol Hill,” said No Labels co-founder Mark McKinnon. “Too many competent legislators have retired from Congress for the same reason as Senator Snowe. They’re sick and tired of being trapped in a rotten system.”

The half a million No Labels supporters across America thank Senator Snowe for her more than 33 years of public-spirited service in Congress,” said No Labels co-founder Bill Galston. “A recent example of her legislative leadership is her decision to co-sponsor the No Budget, No Pay Act (S. 1981), that will withhold pay from members of Congress if they fail to pass a budget and all 12 appropriations bills on-time. The bill will receive a hearing on March 14.”

No Labels is a group of Republicans, Democrats and Independents who want our government to work again. To arrange an interview with a No Labels co-founder, please contact Sarah Feldman at press@nolabels.org or (202) 588-1990. To learn more about No Labels, please visit www.NoLabels.org.

    Today is Tax Day and the American people have a deadline to meet. If we don't, we get fined or could even go to jail. But Congress has an April deadline too -- and if members fail there are no consequences. This must change.
