Today, No Labels is throwing a Yellow Flag at House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Congress as a whole. Right now, with weeks to go until the August 2 debt ceiling deadline, Congress is scheduled to have 27 days off, but is only spending 13 concurrent days in session. Many legislators have expressed their concern and frustration with the scheduling conflicts; with no time to meet, how can they make a deal? If your family was about to default on your debt, would you take a break?
In our new No Labels poll, 8 of 10 Americans agree that Congress should stay in Washington until they have taken concrete steps to solve our fiscal crisis.
Our message to Congress is clear: No Deal, No Break.
