Washington, D.C. – Members of the Super Committee have only 101 days remaining prior to the November 23 deadline to report a deficit reduction plan of at least $1.2 trillion. No Labels is calling on the 12 members of the Super Committee to return to Washington immediately to begin their deliberations.
“While members of Congress need to be back in their districts hearing their constituents’ frustration at Washington dysfunction and hyper-partisan games, these 12 members of the Super Committee have a major task ahead of them and must begin their work at once,” said Lisa Borders, a No Labels Co-Founder. “The American people can’t afford for Washington to fail them yet again.”
“It took more than 200 days for the Bowles-Simpson Commission to release their report,” said Dave Walker, a No Labels Co-Founder. “The Joint Committee has less than half that time to come to a bipartisan agreement and report their proposal. The 12 lawmakers need to return to Washington immediately and begin the hard work ahead of them.
“It’s going to take time and a sincere effort for the members of the Joint Committee to put everything on the table, cooperate across party lines and make the tough but necessary choices to put our nation on a sustainable fiscal path. With so much at stake, there is no time to waste.”
No Labels is a national citizens' movement of Republicans, Democrats and Independents that urges bipartisan cooperation in the interest of common sense solutions.
