by Categorized: Uncategorized Date:

\"himesNo Labels was formed in 2010 with the goal of helping the nation move beyond the partisan gridlock that seems to paralyze Washington.

But with Congress as polarized as ever, the group is launching a new initiative to encourage collaboration between members of both parties.

\"noNo Labels is hosting a meeting in New York today that focuses on \”problem-solving.\’\’ Big names such as former Utah Gov. and Republican Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman, Sen. Joe Manchin, a Democrat from West Virginia, and Newark Mayor and Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Cory Booker have joined the movement.

Also signing on as one of 25 congressional problem-solvers: U.S. Rep. Jim Himes from Connecticut\’s 4th District.

\”With @davidcicilline and a bunch of other members and senators at @NoLabelsOrg in NYC. Listening to @CoryBooker talk about problem solving,\’\’ Himes tweeted this morning. (He\’s refering to Rhode Island\’s David Cicilline.)

You can watch a live-stream of the meeting here.

BuzzFeed got video of Huntsman\’s two daughters singing \”God Bless America.\” Watch.

  1. Repeal 2nd Amendment Bill

    In order to make progress on this point, first the capital should be locked shut while all representatives are in session. Locked on Thursday in order to make them socialize with each other through the weekend.

    Next, if we can clean out the remaining Tea Party obstructionists, it will go a long way in doing business the old fashion way; compromise and a shopping bag full of cash.

    All right, so I am not making much sense this morning. It is my constitutional right to not make sense. I think it falls under the 2nd amendment.
