No Labels spent years just trying to get members of Congress from both parties to get in a room together. It wasn’t easy, but over time these meetings built trust, led to legislation and ultimately led to something that has never existed before on Capitol Hill: The creation of a durable bipartisan bloc committed to getting to “yes” on key issues. It’s called the Problem Solvers Caucus.
The creation of the Problems Solvers Caucus was years in the making. What began as informal “get to know you” meetings organized by No Labels led eventually to more substantive cooperation across the aisle, including the introduction of nine bipartisan bills to reduce government waste and inefficiency and the passage of the No Budget, No Pay Act of 2013. These regular bipartisan meetings also played a key role in building support for the Medicare “doc fix” in 2015.

The Problem Solvers Caucus is proving its willingness to operate as a durable bipartisan bloc.
In March, the full Problem Solvers Caucus endorsed a bipartisan gun safety proposal from Problem Solvers Caucus member Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL).
In January 2018, the Problem Solvers Caucus released a proposal to enhance infrastructure funding and streamline approvals for projects.
In January 2018, the Problem Solvers Caucus announced an ambitious immigration proposal, pairing a long-term solution for Dreamers with major new investments in border security.
Caucus members passed a bylaw stating that the Caucus would stick together and vote together if 75 percent of all Caucus members and 51 percent of Democrats and Republicans supported a policy position.
Passed its first test when it united behind a plan calling for a “clean” continuing resolution to keep the government funded in Spring 2017.
The Caucus passed the biggest test of its vote threshold when it released its five-point bipartisan health care fix, which was subsequently endorsed by Governors John Kasich (R-OH) and John Hickenlooper (D-CO). It was the first bipartisan health care fix offered in this Congress and is similar in concept to the recent health care proposal released by Senators Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Patty Murray (D-WA).
