Marco Rubio Is Coming to Nebraska!

October 2, 2012

Join Senator Rubio & Deb Fischer!

Let me begin by thanking you for your tremendous support in helping us reach our end of quarter fundraising goal.

I am humbled by the hundreds of Nebraskans who invested in our campaign and who have continued to help us build such incredible momentum.

I am sure that momentum will only continue to grow, as I am proud to announce that Senator Marco Rubio is coming to Nebraska on Thursday, October 25 to be a special guest at a fundraiser for our campaign.

Elected in 2010, Marco Rubio shocked the political pundits by beating the political establishment.

Sound familiar?

In just two short years in the Senate, Senator Rubio has become an outspoken leader for restoring fiscal responsibility to our federal government.

Now he is coming to Nebraska because he knows how important this race is – both for Nebraskans and for taking control of the United States Senate.

I hope you’ll be able to be a part of this special fundraising event, so please make a contribution today and reserve your seat.

Senator Rubio knows we need more commonsense conservatives in Washington to cut wasteful spending, reform our broken tax code and balance the budget.

He knows we need leaders who are willing to make the tough decisions, stand firm on principle and offer serious solutions to the challenges facing our nation.

As your next Senator, I’ll champion the pro-growth, limited government policies that will bring an end to the era of runaway deficits, crushing debt, and endless red tape.

We’ll be sharing more details about the fundraising event in the coming weeks, but be sure and RSVP today and ensure your spot at the event.

For more information about the fundraiser, please contact rubioevent@debfischer2012.com or call 402-759-5170.

Thanks again for your continued support. We are so close to victory, and together, we can and will make history on November 6.

Sincerely,

Deb Fischer

Another Decisive Debate Win For Deb Fischer

October 1, 2012

“While Senator Fischer outlined her proposals to create jobs, provide middle-class tax relief, pass a balanced budget amendment and implement market-based health care reform, Bob Kerrey reiterated his support for government-run health care, tax hikes on the middle-class, and Obamacare’s $700 billion in cuts to Medicare.”

“Bob Kerrey clearly demonstrated why he’s out of touch with Nebraska. Trailing badly in the polls and unable to run on his liberal record, Kerrey resorted to launching false attacks against Senator Fischer throughout the debate.”

OMAHA Nebraska, September 28, 2012 - Following today’s KETV-Omaha Chamber of Commerce Debate, Fischer campaign spokesman Daniel Keylin released the following statement:

“Today, Nebraskans had another chance to see the stark differences between Senator Deb Fischer and Bob Kerrey.

“While Senator Fischer outlined her proposals to create jobs, provide middle-class tax relief, pass a balanced budget amendment and implement market-based health care reform, Bob Kerrey reiterated his support for government-run health care, tax hikes on the middle-class, and Obamacare’s $700 billion in cuts to Medicare.

“Bob Kerrey clearly demonstrated why he’s out of touch with Nebraska. Trailing badly in the polls and unable to run on his liberal record, Kerrey resorted to launching false attacks against Senator Fischer throughout the debate.

“Unfortunately for Bob Kerrey, Nebraskans want a commonsense conservative who will bring the Nebraska Way to Washington, not a New York liberal who will be an automatic vote for the failed big-government policies of President Obama and Harry Reid.”

Fischer touts economic plans at South Sioux City stop

September 20, 2012

SOUTH SIOUX CITY | As the months of the U.S. Senate campaign in Nebraska have gone on, Republican candidate Deb Fischer has held tightly to her agenda of improving the nation’s business climate to boost job growth.

Speaking after a South Sioux City Chamber of Commerce event on Friday, Fischer said even though differing domestic and international hot topics have popped up in 2012, the people of Nebraska still most want lawmakers to address the economy.

Fischer, a state senator from Valentine, said the poor economy stems from federal overspending and too sizable debt. Fix those government budget problems, she said, and things will improve elsewhere in the economy.

“Everything else stems from that. We need to balance the budget, we need to grow jobs, we need to look at the deficit and the debt,” Fischer said.

She is running against Bob Kerrey, a Democrat, for the seat currently held by U.S.Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., who did not seek another term.

Fischer said it is wrong to criticize her position that the federal deficit, now at$1.16 trillion, can be pared back with program cuts and without tax increases.

“Everybody always brings up that you have to increase taxes. No, we don’t. You can increase (governmental) revenue by creating jobs, and that’s what I want todo,” Fischer said.

Reforming the tax code and reducing unhelpful regulations on businesses is the way to aid the business climate, she said.

Fischer would not commit to a goal of a certain amount of dollars that should be cut each year to balance the budget. She said that balancing goal would take atleast 10 years.”

“It is not really realistic for me to stand here and say, ‘Yes, we need to cut this much or this much or this much.’ Of course, we can look at cuts. If you repeal ObamaCare, that is $500 billion that you can save. If you reduce the federal workforce by 15 percent, that is $230 billion,” Fischer said.

“…There are no easy answers, there are no sound bites to this, and Nebraskans realize that.”

Kerrey, a former two-term senator, campaigned in Dakota County on Monday. Fischer said she and Kerrey are definitely on the opposite side of most issues, so Nebraskans will have stark contrasts from which to choose in the Nov. 6 election.
