5.0 out of 5 stars The Grownups Show Up, January 14, 2014
This review is from: No Labels: A Shared Vision for a Stronger America (Kindle Edition)
This just in: our ship of state is salvageable. In fact, it's being salvaged as we speak.

Beneath the headlines of failure in Washington, Republicans and Democrats across the country have quietly come together to do what needs to be done. In "No Labels: A Shared Vision," a chorus of accomplished governors and lawmakers tell some doozies about how they did it.

We don't need another blue ribbon commission to tell us how to improve education, health care, the budget or social security. (OK, maybe health care.) Mostly we need to remember what responsible governance looks like.

It looks like this: elected and appointed officials of both parties, at the state and federal levels, coming together to deal with a toxic mess on the Kansas-Oklahoma border. It looks like the bipartisan accountability measure "No Budget, No Pay," which was signed into law last year after intense attention to the issue by No Labels. Ultimately, it looks like the kind of solution that Reps. Charlie Dent and Ron Kind--one Republican, one Democrat--promoted to help end the most recent government shutdown.

Whatever their differences, Clinton and Gingrich did it; Reagan and O'Neill did it; Penny and Kasich did it. No Labels is committed to bringing back responsible governance across the aisle and across our political system. And they've assembled, in one tidy volume, leading voices from politics, think tanks and academia on how to define and achieve our own generation's priorities.

This movement now has 90 adherents in Congress. At the State of the Union, you're going to see a bunch of orange pins on their lapels. Download the No Labels manifesto today, and you'll know what they're all about--and why they're the best bet we have for a sea change in Congressional effectiveness between now and 2016.

OK, I've got it! We need a plan and all 64 reviews were wonderful, but when do we start planning? I volunteer to work on the education problem. --Ron Davison 801-400-4529
