Huntsman said the political divide that's becoming the norm in Washington has to change.
"Something happens when people get to Congress and Washington," Huntsman said. "It's almost like you pick a side and pick a team and conclude never then to work the issues."
Too many people are making money off of Washington's divide like never before in America's history, he added.
"It's how you transcend all that nonsense and get back to the work of the people," Huntsman said. "It's about creating trust."
Among No Labels' members from across the country, Rep. David McKinley, R-W.Va. is one.
The organization is funded entirely through donations. In 2012, No Labels operated on a $2 million budget. The most important part of the project, as Huntsman sees it, will be the grass roots component.
Manchin said No Labels brings common sense solutions that benefit all Americans.
"If you're an American, we're all living in the same great country with the same problems," Manchin said.
Both Manchin and Huntsman echoed an urgency to put country before political party.
