No Labels’ Problem Solvers to Announce ‘Make Government Work!’

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Thursday, July 18, at 11 a.m., Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick- along with 80 Democratic and Republican members of Congress from both chambers- will announce a legislative reform package of nine bills in a first of its kind format to clearly demonstrate the trust-building priorities of the new group.

"I got elected to get things done in Washington- people are tired of partisan bickering and crippling gridlock,” said Fitzpatrick. “That’s why on July 18 80 members of our Problem Solvers coalition gather to make a big announcement that will show there’s common ground in the capital ad we’re ready to get to work."

The Make Government Work! package features nine common-sense bills designed to make government more efficient, effective and less wasteful. Make Government Work! represents the first legislative package by the No Labels Problem Solvers coalition. It’s a first step, but it’s a big step toward restoring trust between lawmakers and eventually strengthening the American people’s trust in our nation’s leaders.

No Labels introduced the inaugural group of 24 congressional Problem Solvers in January. Since then, the coalition has more than tripled in size to 80 members.

“Voters are frustrated and have sent each and every one of us to Congress with a clear mandate: break through the partisan gridlock and get things done. Building trust and meaningful relationships across party lines must be the starting point for that to happen,” said Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI). “The Problem Solvers group is bringing people together, from across the political spectrum, to have open, honest discussions to find solutions to the challenges that affect every one of our communities."
