Membership Roster: Problem Solvers Caucus
Beginning in 2017, the Problem Solvers Caucus became an independent member-driven group in Congress, comprised of representatives from across the country--equally divided between Democrats and Republicans--committed to finding common ground on many of the key issues facing the nation. The Caucus' aim is to create a durable bloc that champions ideas that appeal to a broad spectrum of the American people. It is a group united in the idea that there are commonsense solutions to many of the country's toughest challenges. Only when we work together as Americans can we successfully break through the gridlock of today's politics.
In the 115th and 116th Congress, Problem Solvers Caucus members agreed to find bipartisan solutions on issues including:
- Coronavirus Recovery and Contingency Planning: a COVID-19 emergency relief framework that would help American students, families, small businesses, workers, and health care providers during this crisis.
- The Problem
Solvers' report "Rebuilding America's Infrastructure," is a comprehensive bipartisan proposal that includes recommendations on building a 21st-century infrastructure for a 21st-century economy.
- Health Care: The Caucus identified and promoted several commonsense proposals to help stabilize the individual health insurance marketplace and reduce health care costs, especially the price of prescription drugs.
- Immigration: In June 2019, the Caucus voted as a bloc to deliver aid to children and families at the border that might have otherwise been delayed due to partisan divides in the House and Senate.
- Criminal Justice Reform: the Caucus helped Congress pass much-needed criminal justice reform to provide relief for those who earn and deserve a second chance.
- "Break the Gridlock": commonsense congressional rule changes promote increased openness, bipartisanship, and transparency, by instituting a new "Consensus Calendar" for any bill with more than 290 cosponsors.
