Problem Solvers Caucus Establishing Coalition of the Governing

Mar 29, 2017

Working Across the Aisle to Find Solutions

Congressman Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ) and Congressman Tom Reed (R-NY), co-chairs of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, announce their intent to lead a coalition of members who have a desire to work across the aisle to prevent obstructionism from blocking the progress of accomplishing real reforms in Washington.

“As last week showed, we have a much better shot of making progress when we work together, across the aisle. There are plenty of issues — from tax reform to infrastructure — where we can find common ground if we are willing to sit down together at the table.

“The Problem Solvers Caucus stands ready to lead. We know how to find common ground to move the ball forward on the issues that matter to the American people,” Gottheimer said.

“Moving forward, the Problem Solvers Caucus will be the coalition of the governing because clearly these issues are too important to the American people to ignore or to take sides. Those of us who remember that we were sent to Washington to solve problems and pass laws that help all Americans, reject taking the easy route to no and instead have pledged to work together to get to yes.

“Because Americans are increasingly demanding solutions that will help all people, regardless of party, the Problem Solvers Caucus will carry influence in how we, in Congress, get past the gridlock to get things done,” Reed added.
