Rep. Abigail Spanberger

Abigail Spanberger

Democratic Whip
Virginia, 7th District

Committees: Foreign Affairs, Agriculture

“During my time as a federal law enforcement agent and CIA case officer, I focused on gathering information to help government officials make the right decisions—not the most politically-expedient decisions. To truly address our country’s challenges—from the high cost of prescription drugs to the lack of reliable broadband internet in our rural communities, we need to encourage Democrats and Republicans to find common ground. And, if we want to begin the long process of fixing our broken healthcare and immigration systems, we can’t be afraid to gather ideas from our colleagues on the other side of the political spectrum. My colleagues in the Problem Solvers Caucus understand the need to remove partisan games out of important policy discussions, and I’m proud to be a Member of this Caucus and to serve as Co-Chair of its Drug Pricing Task Force.”

“Too many in Congress and our country have retreated to corners, and it’s time to re-engage in conversation. That’s why I’m grateful to be a member of the Problem Solvers Caucus, where we’re initiating debate, igniting optimism, and elevating the best ideas from both sides of the aisle.”

Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler

"I’m proud to have successfully led solutions supported by both Republicans and Democrats that make life better for Americans. Whether it’s strengthening treatment access for medically complex kids of low-income families, spearheading the first congressional response to the maternal mortality crisis, or protecting our precious natural resources here in the Pacific Northwest, these are efforts that benefit all residents. Putting solutions and problem-solving first is what Southwest Washington expects of me."

Rep. Thomas Suozzi

New York, 3rd District
Committee: Ways and Means

"As a mayor, county executive, and now Member of Congress I have always strived to work with anyone, regardless of party, to create results for the betterment of the American people. Our nation is more divided than ever and, as a result, nothing gets done. The Problem Solvers Caucus fosters a more bipartisan process in the House of Representatives. Its aim is to give the American people want they really want; a legislative body that addresses the very real problems our country faces with regards to climate change, immigration, healthcare, infrastructure, and a host of other important items.”

Rep. Fred Upton

“The Problem Solvers Caucus -with Republicans and Democrats from across the country – represents hope for many who wish to see Congress act in a more respectful way that focuses on solutions and results rather than on winning partisan fights and mean-spirited debates. A vibrant democratic republic depends on vigorous discussion – but also recognizes the importance of compromise and coming together, and that’s what this group is all about.”

"As a Marine, a firefighter, and a small business owner, I learned the importance of working together to achieve real results.

We all want a good future for our children. We all want a strong democracy and a strong economy. I look forward to working with this group of 56 colleagues to find places of common interest and common ground.”

Committees: Transportation, Armed Services, Agriculture

“There is more that unites than divides us, and no single party has a monopoly on good ideas. During my tenure as a Santa Barbara County Supervisor, I worked across the aisle in order to modernize our infrastructure and secure funding for children's health insurance. As a Member of Congress, I have championed bipartisan legislation on topics ranging from veteran's benefits to gun violence prevention. My constituents sent me to Washington to achieve real progress, and the Problem Solver Caucus allows me and my colleagues to break down party barriers and work together to achieve results on the issues facing our county at this critical time.”

“In our deeply divided and polarized country, it is more critical than ever that we move past the politics of all-or-nothing and forge a better path to just plain solving problems and forging solutions for all Americans. The Problem Solvers Caucus offers that path, starting with open and civil debate on the most difficult issues of our time, and on through to mainstream solutions that will earn support of most Americans and last.”

“Since coming to Congress, I have championed multiple pieces that were signed into law and all of them received bipartisan support.

I am proud to be a member of the Problem Solvers Caucus to work towards pragmatic solutions to improve the lives of Utahns and Americans.”

Rep. Debbie Dingell

Michigan, 12th District
Committees: Energy & Commerce, Natural Resources

“The American people are tired of the partisan bickering and gridlock that’s prevented Congress from addressing issues impacting hardworking men and women. Too often we retreat to our familiar corners to talk with people who think like us, unwilling to engage with those with different views. Our responsibility in Congress is larger than that. We made an obligation to deliver for those who sent us to Washington – that means working in a bipartisan manner. Unity – not division –makes our country strong. As a member of the Problem Solvers Caucus, we work every day to bring members together and bridge the partisan divide.”

“I consistently hear from my constituents that they want members of Congress to work together for the good of the country and our communities. Members of Congress and so many Americans are both bitterly divided and seemingly unable to listen to one another. This needs to end now, and the Problem Solvers Caucus can help lead the way. I’m excited to join this team and to get to work with the other members of the caucus on our nation's most pressing problems.” 

Rep. Tony Gonzales

“In an era of divided government and divisiveness, it’s easy to think the challenges we face are insurmountable, dig your heels in, and retreat. But our constituents sent us here to deliver. I am proud to be a member of the Problem Solvers Caucus – a consortium of individuals who roll up their sleeves, push past partisanship, and get results for the American people. Bipartisanship isn’t always easy but it certainly isn’t impossible. This group proves that.”

“I joined the Problem Solvers Caucus because my constituents are counting on me to deliver for them. Before starting my career in politics, I led Nevada’s Culinary Training Academy and worked with people from all backgrounds to train Nevadans for good jobs in the hospitality industry. As Majority Leader in the Nevada Senate, I built a bipartisan coalition to rescue our state from a budget crisis. Now, in the House of Representatives, I’ve been proud to work across the aisle to create good jobs, protect working people, and build a bright future for families in Nevada’s Fourth District and across the country.”

“It’s tough enough to get important things done in Washington, but it’s even tougher if the two sides won’t even sit down to talk. The Problem Solvers Caucus affords us that opportunity. I’ll continue to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to find common ground on policy areas where there’s general agreement, like the need to improve America’s infrastructure, addressing drug addiction, and creating more opportunities for Americans to pursue the American Dream.  Not everything needs to be viewed through a partisan lens, and I’ll keep working to move the ball forward for those I represent.”

“Americans deserve a good-faith effort from their elected officials to drop the partisan bickering and work together to solve the challenges facing our nation. My colleagues and I on the Problem Solvers Caucus pride ourselves on leaving politics at the door and listening to our constituents. When we fairly evaluate ideas outside of our own ideology, we not only encourage effective lawmaking, we also ensure that when we do disagree, we can do so respectfully. Regardless of where you land on the political spectrum, I think we can all agree that the current blue team versus red team mentality is preventing us from addressing our nation’s problems and the American people are paying the price. I am proud to be a part of this group of lawmakers who work across the aisle to prioritize the needs of their constituents.”

The Problem Solvers Caucus serves as a vehicle for Republicans and Democrats to craft impactful legislation addressing critical issues facing Americans across the country. For far too long, partisan gridlock in Congress has prevented elected officials from delivering legislative results and I am thrilled to work with members of the Problem Solves Caucus to create effective, bipartisan solutions.”

This Caucus is committed to finding common ground and creating common sense solutions to issues working families are facing every day.”

“There’s nothing is more urgent for our country than breaking the gridlock in Congress and getting legislation to President Biden’s desk -- and with both Houses so closely divided, the only sure way to do that is to build bipartisan consensus from the start. I look forward to working with the Problem Solvers Caucus to enact legislation that will rebuild our economy, protect our environment, improve our health care, and restore confidence in our democracy."

I’m so proud to be part of the Problem Solvers Caucus, a group of lawmakers –– with equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans –– who employ that same bipartisan, mission-focus by working together on legislation that matters to people’s families and to their pocketbooks. Our collective work on the Never Forget the Heroes Act to extend the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund and restore full rights to victims is an example of just how powerful that cooperation can be, and I look forward to working on other important bills that put people before politics or party.”

“Years of political brinksmanship has left Washington broken, unable to effectively serve the American people. Somewhere along the way, politicians replaced debate with ultimatums, disagreement with hyperbole, and opponent with enemy. However, I am proud to be a member of the Problem Solver Caucus, a group committed to changing the mindset in Congress. 

I believe fixing Washington happens one conversation and one handshake at a time. When Republicans and Democrats negotiate in good faith, put party aside, and work on behalf of the American people, there is progress to be made."
