IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Kerrey says improve health care; Fischer says repeal
Democratic Senate nominee Bob Kerrey said Thursday Congress needs to move now to "true cost containment" health care measures while Republican nominee Deb Fischer called for repeal of the health care reform law upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.
"Now that the court spectacle is over, it's time for Republicans and Democrats to put partisan politics aside and get down to business to find true cost containment solutions before we bankrupt the country," Kerrey said in a written statement.
"I for one am confident I can work with Republicans to find common-sense solutions that begin with establishing state-based exchanges and supporting exciting initiatives by providers to lower costs and improve quality."
Fischer said she would support "the full repeal of ObamaCare" if she is elected to the Senate this November.
