"No Labels" Host "How to Fix a Broken Congress" Group

On Friday, April 27 at 5:30 p.m at the University of New England's Portland Campus, No Labels, the grassroots movement of more than half a million Republicans, Democrats and independents dedicated to making government work again, will host a panel on ways to fix gridlock and hyper-partisanship in Congress.

No Labels is building on momentum for its 'No Budget, No Pay Act' and other reform proposals from its 12-point "Make Congress Work!" action plan. The 'No Budget, No Pay Act' would withhold congressional pay if members of Congress fail to pass spending bills and the budget on time.

"As I travel around Maine, I hear every day from citizens who are fed up with gridlock in Washington. It's why I am running for the Senate seat. The discussion around No Budget, No Pay is an important one to have as we search for solutions to complex problems. It's very clear that it is time to move Congress from point-scoring to problem solving, and I look forward to discussing the No Labels common sense proposals to make Congress work." Independent U.S. Senate Candidate Angus King

"Almost no one believes Congress is functioning as it should, but No Labels is the only group out there with a smart, common sense plan to fix it. Senator Snowe's recent retirement gave Maine people a special insight into the consequences of partisan politics in Washington. Citizens in Maine and across the country need to stand up, seize back from the hyper-partisans our political process and demand the solutions that will get the country back on track, and that's what this event is all about." -- Former independent candidate for governor and No Labels Co-Founder Eliot Cutler
