NO RESULTS: President Barack Obama met with House Speaker John Boehner Tuesday in the Oval Office and discussed several issues, but little was achieved. Our leaders need to take these opportunities to agree to shared goals to solve our country's problems: Russell Berman and Justin Sink for The Hill: Obama, Boehner achieve little at reunion
INCREASING DIVIDE: What used to be a place for discussion and sober debate, the National Governors Association has now turned into “another battlefield in the partisan wars that define American politics,” writes Dan Balz. Our lawmakers need to come together to create a national strategic agenda both sides can agree to: Dan Balz for The Washington Post: National Governors Association showing deep Republican, Democratic divisions
TAKING CARE OF OUR OWN: Problem Solver Reps. Ami Bera and Chris Gibson came together to create the 21st Century Healthcare for Heroes Act, “a bill to construct a streamlined and easily accessible electronic health-records system for military service members and veterans. The bill became part of a legislative package, Make Government Work!, that the No Labels Problem Solvers unveiled last summer with sponsors on both sides of the aisle. So clearly beneficial was the No Labels bipartisan, common-sense bill that key language from it was incorporated into the National Defense Authorization Act, which was signed into law by President Obama in December,” writes No Labels Co-Founder Jonathan Miller. This is just one example of what lawmakers can accomplish when they create shared goals: Jonathan Miller for The Hill: Working together to take care of our service men, women and returning vets
