A LETTER FROM
Larry Hogan

JANUARY 22, 2021

nyone who wants to build a better American future has to recognize that our problems cannot be solved by partisan politics. Washington today is completely out of whack. It’s not just that partisanship is dominant in our politics. It’s that partisan politics have crowded out the space for anything else. But, amid this bleak picture, hope for a renewed politics of problem solving is on the horizon. For a decade, No Labels has been working to build the bipartisan governing coalition capable of solving America’s toughest problems.

Anyone who wants to build a better American future has to recognize that our problems cannot be solved by partisan politics. Washington today is completely out of whack. It’s not just that partisanship is dominant in our politics. It’s that partisan politics have crowded out the space for anything else. But, amid this bleak picture, hope for a renewed politics of problem solving is on the horizon. For a decade, No Labels has been working to build the bipartisan governing coalition capable of solving America’s toughest problems.
Now, this movement is having its moment. And I am so proud to serve as No Labels' national co-chair and to help lead this organization into the future.

In December 2020, when Americans were desperately seeking help amid the awful pandemic, it was No Labels’ bipartisan House and Senate allies who rose to the occasion and forged a bipartisan relief bill. They did it because they knew the stakes and that millions of Americans were counting on them.

In 2021, with power more evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans in Congress than it has been decades, House and Senate members who embrace No Labels brand of politics have an unprecedented opportunity to assert leverage and demand results.
That's exactly what needs to happen.
I believe the overwhelming majority of Americans are demanding their leaders work together to find bipartisan, commonsense solutions.

I joined No Labels as national co-chair to continue pushing our federal leaders to break the gridlock, to act as a bridge between problem solvers on the state and federal levels, and to encourage all Americans to see that they can play a role in solving the serious problems we face.

“I believe the overwhelming majority of Americans are demanding their leaders work together to find bipartisan, commonsense solutions.”
The message of No Labels isn't that we have to compromise our principles. We can seek out bipartisan, commonsense solutions that work for all Americans. We can debate and reason together honestly and productively, with integrity and sincere purpose. We can argue without acrimony, negotiate without hidden agendas and compromise without political posturing.

If you are a part of the No Labels movement, I am honored to be a part of it with you. If you aren’t, I hope you will join us soon.

We have so much work to do and so much opportunity to finally push our leaders in Washington to come together to solve America’s toughest problems.
Sincerely,
Gov. Larry Hogan

A LETTER FROM
Joe Lieberman

hen I left the Senate in January 2013, I wanted to find a way as a private citizen to fix the worsening dysfunction in Washington. I found it in No Labels, which I have been honored to co-chair since 2014.

When I left the Senate in January 2013, I wanted to find a way as a private citizen to fix the worsening dysfunction in Washington. I found it in No Labels, which I have been honored to co-chair since 2014.
I’ve always thought the work of No Labels is important. But now, in 2021, I feel an urgency I have never felt before.
The seething anger and division in our politics is becoming dangerous, and far too many elected officials have forgotten a fundamental truth about our democracy:
Our two parties have changed their policies and priorities over America’s history, but the need for them to work with each other for the good of the country never changes.
America is too big and too diverse a country for one side to impose its vision on the other. If we keep going down this road, we will find only more anger and resentment.
Fortunately, No Labels is intent on taking America down a different road—with both parties working with each other to solve our biggest problems—and we have a growing army of elected officials and citizen-members right alongside us.
In a January 30, 1787, letter from Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, the then-U.S. Minister to France wrote:
I hold that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing and as necessary in the political world as storms are in the physical world. God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion.
Today, No Labels is leading such a rebellion against the status quo in Washington and to fix our political system, end divisive partisanship, and restore trust to the relationship between the elected leaders who govern and the citizenry who are governed.
In the end, in this great republic that Jefferson, Madison, and their contemporaries created, we, the American people, will decide by our action or inaction whether our future will be as good as we want it to be.

No Labels: Tell Democrats and Republicans in Washington we need them to work together.

No Labels is a rapidly growing citizen-led organization mobilizing frustrated Republicans, Democrats and Independents – the majority of Americans – into a new political force to break the paralysis of hyperpartisanship and dysfunction in Washington. The goal is to make government work again by fighting for bipartisan, commonsense solutions to our nation's biggest problems and reforms to our political system.
