ICYMI: New Push to Get Partisans Talking

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - January 14, 2014) - In case you missed it, The Wall Street Journal's Gerald Seib wrote about No Labels' new e-book, "No Labels: A Shared Vision for a Stronger America" in his weekly Capitol Journal column. No Labels is calling for a new governing process that would create a national strategic agenda for the country. It starts with our leaders agreeing to goals first before the policymaking starts. Mexico successfully just did that and developed an entire agenda all parties could support. At the State of the Union No Labels will have more than 60 lawmakers wearing pins to signify support for this new way to start solving problems.

Below is an excerpt from Mr. Seib's column, highlighting No Labels' work, the new e-book, and the organization's State of the Union plans:

"No Labels is a movement, now three years old, of Democrats, Republicans and independents, from inside Congress and out, dedicated to the simple proposition that partisans in Washington ought to start talking to one another again across the divides -- and that voters ought to start demanding such behavior.

"It's led by two former governors -- Joe Manchin of West Virginia, now a Democratic Senator, and Jon Huntsman of Utah, most recently a Republican presidential candidate -- and almost 90 members of Congress who have signed up to join a No Labels 'Problem Solvers Caucus.' Dozens of them will be wearing No Labels lapel pins at President Barack Obama's State of the Union address on Jan. 28.

"Now the group is launching what it calls a three-year plan to turn those sentiments into action, starting with Tuesday's publication of 'No Labels: A Shared Vision for America.' Like the movement itself, the book has a simple aspiration. It spells out four big goals for political leaders to embrace, and then wraps those goals within case studies written by the likes of former Secretary of State James Baker and nine sitting members of Congress showing that, yes, it's actually possible for partisans to work together.

"Thus, the No Labels three-year plan, which is to unfold between now and the 2016 presidential election. The next stage is for business groups, grass-roots groups and state and local government leaders to meet in July to embrace the goals.

"Only then will the No Labels congressional group come up, in 2015, with legislative proposals to accomplish the big goals. The hope is that those bipartisan plans can help drive the debate in the 2016 presidential election year, a year that also will give voters the opportunity to take out their frustration on obstructionist politicians who stand in the way."
