Press Release


WASHINGTON - Tonight, Problem Solvers Caucus Co-Chairs Congressman Tom Reed (NY-23) and Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5), issued the following statement ahead of the President’s State of the Union address:

“For decades, partisan political divides have prevented us from taking the necessary steps to address many of the challenges facing our nation.  Now is the time for bipartisan cooperation.

“Over the past several years, the Problem Solvers Caucus has viewed bipartisanship as a virtue and has sought to bring both sides together to improve the lives of our constituents and to strengthen our democracy. That is why we are putting forth bipartisan proposals to improve our crumbling infrastructure, fix our broken immigration system, secure our border, stabilize health care costs, and stand by our first responders. We will continue to help the people we care about and who we were sent to Washington to represent.

“We are indeed stronger as a country when Congress and the President work together to move us forward as one nation.”
