Fischer Happy To Be Home

Nebraska Senator Deb Fischer says it’s good to be back in Nebraska during the August break from Washington.¬†Fischer has been spending some time at home, but mostly has been traveling the state…hearing from constituents. . .

Fischer says one issue dominates her discussion with constituents. . .

Fischer isn’t pleased that President Obama postponed implementation of the mandate that businesses provide health coverage for employees. She says no one segment of the country should get a pass on enacting the law while other segments are forced to comply.
