Fischer Vows Compassionate End to Obamacare

NEBRASKA.- Following the Senate’s early Thursday vote to unwind Obamacare, Senator Deb Fischer is promising a thoughtful transition.

“The Senate has voted to put the tools in place to repeal ObamaCare. My focus moving forward is delivering the compassionate, hassle-free, personalized health care Nebraskans deserve. As we work toward this goal, there will be a stable transition period that protects families while Congress replaces this law in the right way, and for the right reasons,” Fischer said in the statement.

President-elect Donald Trump is pressuring fellow Republicans on Capitol Hill to pass a replacement for the healthcare law at the same time or soon after they vote to dismantle it.

About 20 million Americans have gained insurance through the  Affordable Care Act.
