Fischer: More bipartisanship in Washington that what's reported

Nebraska's junior U.S. Senator says she is finding ways to work across party lines in her first five months in Washington D.C. despite the partisanship that appears to part of every issue in Congress.

Deb Fischer told KNEB News Tuesday there is more cooperation than is reported in the national media, noting President Obama has had more of his nominations and judgeships confirmed than President Bush. And she has worked with colleagues in the other party, even those that generally have totally opposite beliefs, to get things accomplished.

Fischer noted she worked with Democrat Al Franken on a budget amendment that passed unanimously. She Laughed "if that is not bipartisanship I don't know what is."

Fischer says she enjoyed the legislative process as a state senator and continues to like working through different opinions if possible to get things done in Washington.
