No Labels, the group dedicated to solving the nation’s problems and avoiding labels at all costs, has gotten about 70 members of Congress to agree to be a “problem solver.” You can even see these folks at Tuesday’s State of the Union address because they’ll be wearing, um, labels.
The official No Labels “problem solver” lapel pin is a green-on-black ampersand-looking symbol that fits neatly alongside a member’s member lapel pin. The ampersandy thingie is made of a “p” and and “s.” It’s nothing like the swirly symbol from “True Detective.”
“We wanted to do something different and eye-catching,” No Labels’ Matt Groch told HOH. Previous iterations of No Labels’ lapel pins have been a bit wordy (“Committed to Fix Not Fight — No Labels — Problem Solver” goes one the blasts from the past.)
