Lipinski named ‘Problem Solver’ by grassroots group No Labels
WESTERN SPRINGS — U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski, D-3rd Dist., Western Springs, was one of 24 bipartisan congressional “Problem Solvers” unveiled Monday by No Labels, a grassroots national movement of hundreds of thousands of Americans from across parties and ideologies who want to see Washington focus on solving problems.
The event took place in New York City as part of the “Meeting to Make America Work,” which brought together more than 1,300 people and elected officials from across the country to have a meaningful dialogue about solutions to our nation’s most pressing problems.
In March, Lipinski helped introduce a budget modeled after the Simpson-Bowles deficit reduction commission recommendations that included a mix of spending cuts and new revenue to reduce the federal deficit by $4 trillion over 10 years.
For his stance, Lipinski was given the Paul E. Tsongas Economic Patriot Award last fall by the Concord Coalition, honoring those who have demonstrated a commitment to fiscal responsibility.
