Politicans have always disagreed, but they used to be able to find some common ground.
A citizens movement called "No Labels" includes democrats, republicans and independents -- trying to force our lawmakers to reach some middle ground to solve our nation's problems.
Former state lawmaker, Chris Telfer says she hears from lots of people who support the effort.
"I think there's a movement to bring this together as a coordinated effort. Half our voters really want to go back to the time when we reached middle ground. They're fed up with nothing getting done. It's all about who got the power and who's willing to cut a deal to get the power."
"No Labels" has recruited dozens of members of congress to become part of the movement. They meet regularly to built trust across the political aisle.
