Gov. Walker on health care vote: Move forward to tax reform

Gov. Scott Walker responded to questions about a failed vote on President Donald Trump’s health care bill during an interview with “Fox & Friends” on Sunday.

On the show, Walker said the president and Republicans should move forward and focus on future legislation instead of dwelling on the failed effort to bring the health care measure to a vote.

“If they go big and bold on tax reform, people will be ready to move forward,” Walker said. “Eventually they have to take a crack between now and November of 2018 on repealing Obamacare, but I think the best thing to get traction is to not look backwards, but to look forward and pass big, bold reform when it comes to taxes.”

Walker said he’s been in touch with House Speaker Paul Ryan since Republicans failed to drum up enough support to pass the American Health Care Act, meant to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. Walker said Ryan is best poised to push forward on tax reform, and added that reaching across the aisle might be necessary for any future health care legislation.
