MADISON - Gov. Scott Walker said Monday he believed House Republicans were improving their plan to repeal Obamacare and warned the worst thing they could do is fail to act.

“The last thing they can do is do nothing. Because doing nothing would be a big mistake not just here, but across the country,” the GOP governor told reporters after awarding grants to veterans groups at the state Capitol.

Walker said he thought House Speaker Paul Ryan of Janesville and others would improve the legislation by providing better tax credits to people in their 50s and 60s.

“We’ll look at the total part of it, but I think they’re moving in the right direction,” he said.
