Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) released the following statement in reaction to release of President Obama's fiscal year 2015 budget:

"In the past, the president's budget has served as a starting point for spending negotiations with Congress. However, this year's budget is 'dead on arrival' – and it's not because of Republican opposition. Senate Democrats have made it perfectly clear they have no intention of passing a budget this year, despite legal requirements to do so. While I don't support the higher taxes, increased spending, and damaging debt contained within the president's budget, I appreciate his willingness to at least have a conversation – a conversation the Senate majority refuses to allow."
