92% of Mainer Supporting No Labels' No Budget, No Pay Act

"No" has released the results of a poll of Maine voters showing 92 percent support for the No Budget, No Pay Act. The No Budget, No Pay Act (H.R. 3634/S. 1981) -- which is co-sponsored by Sen. Olympia Snowe and Rep. Mike Michaud and supported by independent Senate candidate Angus King -- would withhold congressional pay if members of Congress fail to pass a joint budget and spending bills on time. No Budget, No Pay is one of 12 proposals in No Labels' Make Congress Work! action plan, which aims to fix gridlock and hyper-partisanship in Congress.

The poll also found that 88 percent of Maine voters are more likely to vote for candidates who are focused on solving problems rather than those who align most with their political party, and that 96 percent of voters are frustrated by Washington gridlock and want to see government working again.

"We are witnessing the rise of a new kind of voter this election cycle-- the problem solver voter." said No Labels Co-Founder Bill Galston. "These poll results are indicative of what No Labels is seeing across the country, and they're why our No Budget, No Pay proposal has gained such support. With congressional approval at a near all-time low, it's no wonder Mainers prefer problem solvers to partisan point scorers. Problem-solvers will be a key group across the country in November as voters who are tired of Washington dysfunction look to elect candidates who are dedicated to moving beyond gridlock and getting things done."

"The poll released today by No Labels drives home what I hear every day," said independent candidate for U.S. Senate Angus King. "Maine people value hard work, civility, and common sense, but those values aren't much in evidence in Washington these days. Instead, we get a steady diet of partisan bickering, finger pointing and maneuvering for the next election--and nothing gets done. I see No Labels' No Budget, No Pay idea as shock treatment to move us off dead center and get Congress going on the people's business."

The poll was taken through an online survey of 300 registered voters, with a margin of error of ± 5.67 percent. For full results of the poll please email
