US Senator Deb Fischer says this year's budget is dead on arrival, saying Senate Democrats have no intention of passing a budget this year.

Fischer said in a statement, "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."
