Wicker to discuss health care overhaul

JACKSON — U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker planned to discuss health care reform Tuesday with University of Mississippi medical students.

Wicker, a Republican from Mississippi, has said the cost of Democrat’s proposed health care reform will hurt the economy.

Wicker has said reform is needed, but Democrat proposals “will come with more debt, higher taxes and lost jobs.”

The meeting will be held at the Norman C. Nelson Student Union on the University of Mississippi Medical Center campus in Jackson.
