    Deb Fischer fields questions, boos at town hall in Holdrege, Nebraska

    By Robynn Tysver

    HOLDREGE, Neb. — U.S. Sen. Deb Fischer smiled gamely through several choruses of boos Thursday as she met with Nebraskans upset at the prospect of losing health care and angry that President Donald Trump refuses to release his tax returns.
    One woman at the boisterous and sometimes emotional gathering told Fischer that her husband contracted polio as a young man and that the law commonly known as Obamacare allowed her family to access affordable health care for the first time in their lives.
    Fischer supports the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

    “As a member of the Senate, you, Sen. Fischer, hold people’s lives in your hands. I hope you understand that,” said Dee Erb, 62, of Milford.

    2. Ms. Erb is correct – people who are now relying on Obamacare …they will suffer

    after they have repealed Obamacare, because they will be kicked off health care, with nothing to replace it.
