High-Five

This week No Labels looks at local politics and high-fives Virginia state senate candidate Brandon Bell for his campaign’s embrace of the No Labels approach to politics. Bell is a former Republican state senator now running as an independent for a state senate seat in Virginia’s 19th District.

A bipartisan group of 100 Congressmen and 40 Senators is telling the deficit-cutting congressional Super Committee that it must put everything on the table to successfully reduce America’s debt.

No Labels is throwing a yellow flag at the American Association of Retired Persons, the Coalition to Protect America’s Health Care and other interest groups that are demanding that the Super Committee to take their sacred cows off the table in deficit reduction talks.

No Labels is high-fiving Tommy Thompson for saying good government is more important than party litmus tests.

No Labels High Fives ‘Gang of 36,’ Yellow Flags Rush Limbaugh

No Labels gives a high-five to the recently formed bipartisan ‘Gang of 36’ senators for asking the Super Committee to ‘go big’ in deficit reduction and cut $4 trillion in savings over 10 years, not just the $1.2 trillion they’ve been mandated by law to find. No Labels is throwing a yellow flag at Rush Limbaugh for his refusal to see past hyper-partisan labels and find the common sense solutions America needs.

Today, Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) shocked the political world by saying he will resign from his Senate leadership position in January.

This week’s No Labels high five goes to New York Congresswoman Kathy Hochul for standing up for bipartisanship and compromise.

No Labels is high fiving Rep. Dave Camp, and throwing a yellow flag at Rep. Michael Burgess.

This week’s No Labels High Five goes to Representative Gabrielle Giffords.

No Labels is "high fiving" all those who contacted Congress this week to encourage bipartisan cooperation, and throwing a "yellow flag" at all members of Congress who have signed a single-issue partisan pledge.
