Never in modern times have Nebraska voters been provided such far-reaching choices for U.S. Senate in Deb Fischer and Bob Kerrey. Fischer and Kerrey are both decent people but Fischer is a solid Nebraska conservative that was long a leader in the Nebraska legislature while Kerrey is a very liberal politician from Greenwich Village in New York, where his wife resides. Others maintain he kept his job there by being a politician while Fischer served Nebraska as a solid midwestern stateswoman. While there, she led the way with legislation beneficial to Nebraska, while residing on a ranch near Valentine.
Bob Kerrey does have some ideas from New York. One thought of this rich man is to raise taxes and the other is to lower Social Security checks to older Americans. He will definitely take orders from the Democratic machine in Washington, D.C. He will certainly be another Ben Nelson shafting Nebraska voters on health care, dump sites and other Democratic goals not best for the state of Nebraska.
