With Only 36 Days Until August 2 Deadline, No Labels Continues Call To Congress: No Deal, No Break
DeMint's Hyper-Partisan Remarks Get It Wrong, Voters Will Reward Bipartisan Solutions WASHINGTON, D.C. –
Today, No Labels is throwing a yellow flag at Senator Jim DeMint for threatening the full faith and credit of the United States by using scare tactics and threats to actively discourage lawmakers from working together to solve our fiscal crisis. In the latest example of extreme, hyper-partisan rhetoric, Senator DeMint has threatened that lawmakers will lose their jobs if they raise the debt ceiling without a balanced budget amendment and deep across-the-board spending cuts.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — With just six weeks left until the August 2nd deadline to find a bipartisan solution to the fiscal crisis, No Labels released a new national poll assessing political attitudes and intended behavior of American voters regarding the current fiscal crisis. The results reveal overwhelming public support for Congress to stay in Washington and work through its August recess until concrete steps are taken to solve our fiscal crisis.
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.

“There are now signs of a tipping point across the political world. Washington has really embraced the spirit of bipartisanship this week," said Nancy Jacobson, No Labels Co-Founder. “AARP’s openness to changes to Social Security and the bipartisan vote to repeal the ethanol tax credit could be game changers. It's exactly the type of leadership we need from both sides and has huge implications on the broader deficit negotiations."
WASHINGTON, D.C. — No Labels Co-Founders Nancy Jacobson and Mark McKinnon issued the following statement today regarding the death of Osama bin Laden and President Obama’s call for unity.
“The military action that resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden was the culmination of heroic efforts by the military and intelligence communities under President Obama, President George W. Bush, and President Clinton to bring the al-Qaeda mastermind to justice. While the death of Osama bin Laden marks the end of a horrific chapter in our nation’s history, it also means a renewed sense of unity. It’s a rare day to wake up and hear members of both political parties offering collective praise," said Mark McKinnon, No Labels Co-Founder.
Recently on the Laura Ingrahm Show, Congressman Allen West (R-FL) compared President Obama to a dictator, stating that during his budget speech, the President displayed "third world dictator-like arrogance."
No Labels is throwing a yellow flag at Debbie Wasserman Schultz for standing by her recent comments, calling the GOP budget proposal a "death trap for seniors."
