WASHINGTON, March 1, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following statement was released today by No Labels Co-Founders Mark McKinnon and Nancy Jacobson at a press conference on Capitol Hill with over 200 No Labels state leaders:
"We know that we are not going to solve our significant budgetary challenges unless we get everyone at the table and everything on the table. And that means everyone, not just our elected representatives.
"Increasingly, politicians are held hostage by powerful interest groups. So, we need them at the table as well. Today No Labels is calling on representatives of the Tea Party and MoveOn.org to come together to discuss and debate the key budget issues facing our country.
"Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have graciously agreed to host a discussion between leaders of these organizations on their MSNBC program Morning Joe.
"Let's stop the fighting and start the fixing. We need this discussion as soon as possible, for the good of our country."
