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.
