Eighty percent of Americans think that the U.S. landed on the moon. Yet, 94% of Americans say Congress’ inaction on key policy decisions is harming America. Clearly, we can all agree that Congress needs to change.
The question many struggle to answer is: Well what do we do now?
No Labels, a non-partisan advocacy group, has been hard at work designing a blueprint to reform Congress and make it work better for America. This political redux, designed with input from the PolicyMic community, is the first step to getting Congress back on track.
Don’t confuse No Labels’ blueprint with the multitude of congressional reform proposals discussed but never implemented. No Labels will be rolling out these reforms with the full support its 180,000 citizen members, who represent a diverse group of Republicans, Democrats, and Independents in all 50 states. No Labels also boasts a group of respected citizen leaders such as David Walker, former Senator Evan Bayh, and Senator Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) who will push for these changes.
On Tuesday, No Labels releases its Make Congress Work outline for fixing Congress.
Here are a few problems this blueprint will tackle:
1) How do you make sure Congress acts in a fiscally responsible way?
2) How do we force national leaders to be more directly accountable to constituents on a regular basis?
3) How can we force our top two parties to actually talk to each other?
On Tuesday, PolicyMic will be attending the No Labels event and taking questions live from our community over PolicyMic, Facebook, and Twitter – and asking those questions directly to No Labels leaders. We’ll get the No Labels leaders responding over YouTube and get their answers right back to you.
