Walker to lay out health care plan in Minnesota speech

Gov. Walker repays some travel expenses, more bills coming

Republican Scott Walker said he’ll lay out his ideas for changing the American health care system in a speech next week in Minnesota.

The Wisconsin governor has long opposed the federal overhaul championed by President Barack Obama. That’s included a refusal to take federal money to pay for expanding Medicaid coverage in his state, a position Walker has touted on the presidential campaign trail.

He plans to appear Tuesday at a suburban Minneapolis manufacturing company to discuss his plans for repeal and what he’d do to replace the federal overhaul.

Walker is also scheduled to give a speech later that day at a fundraiser for a Minnesota conservative group.
