Freshman Senator Deb Fischer got national attention this weekend as she delivered the weekly Republican response to the presidential radio address.
President Obama addresses the plan to reduce American armed forces in Afghanistan in his address.
Fischer addresses the fiscal problems facing the country, stating, "Washington must cut out-of-control spending."
Fischer says public opinion polls indicate Americans support spending cuts:
"These hardworking taxpayers are tired of petty 'beltway battles' and they're frustrated with the lack of progress from their elected leaders."
Fischer cautions that pending cuts to the military could undermine the duty of Congress to 'provide for the common defense.'
