Still Tense In Senate

A couple of resolutions to some sticky problems in the United States Senate haven’t brought total peace between majority Democrats and minority Republicans…and a Nebraska senator says the August break is coming just in time. Senator Deb Fischer says Democrats and Republicans reached agreement to allow some presidential nominees to win Senate approval…but the top Democrat, Harry Reid still threatens to end the filibuster. Fischer, a Republican, says the filibuster isn’t just a precious right to the minority, it protects the process. . .

She says the climate of the Senate remains tense. . .
