Case Joins the Bipartisan U.S. House Problem Solvers Caucus
Equally divided between Democrats and Republican, the bipartisan group focuses on commonsense solutions to the country's toughest challenges
News Release from Office of Rep Ed Case, Honolulu, April 9, 2021
(Honolulu, HI) – U.S. Congressman Ed Case (Hawai‘i – District 1) today announced that he has joined the U.S. House Problem Solvers Caucus, a bipartisan coalition of U.S. Representatives committed to forging nonpartisan solutions on key national issues.
“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 delivering solutions for all Americans,” said Case. “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 the lasting support of most Americans.”
In his first action with the Caucus, Congressman Case will join a Caucus delegation to the US-Mexico border this weekend for a first-hand review of the ongoing surge of migrants and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s response. The Caucus is addressing comprehensive immigration reform including border security.
The Problem Solvers Caucus is a coalition of 58 Members of the U.S. House, equally divided between Democrats and Republicans, united in the pursuit of commonsense solutions to many of our country’s toughest challenges. In the 115th and 116th Congresses, the Caucus worked towards bipartisan solutions on a broad range of issues, including COVID-19, infrastructure, health care, immigration, criminal justice reform and gun violence reduction. In the current 17th Congress, the Caucus continues on these and other difficult issues including energy, election security, climate change and broadband development in addition to immigration.
“In our democracy, partisan debate and disagreement will always have a place and there will always be times for decisions supported by the majority and opposed by the minority”, said Case. “But that cannot be the rule governing each and every issue we face, with no room left even for constructive discussion and solutions that meld the best of diverse views. I’m truly looking forward to working with my fellow Problem Solvers toward applying our perspectives to the toughest of our issues.”
Case said he hopes to contribute to the Caucus’ work in several areas, including addressing our nation’s skyrocketing deficits and debt.
