Less than two weeks after she questioned her fellow Minnesota U.S. Representative's ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, Rep. Michele Bachmann announced Monday in St. Michael, MN that she's hoping to team up with Rep. Keith Ellison on Medicaid reform.

In a meeting with St. Michael business owners, Bachmann said she was looking to do bi-partisan work to end Medicaid fraud.

"Minnesota is the poster child for Medicaid fraud. If we're going to have a system, we need a system that works for the poor. Right now, it's not working. I've been in communication with Rep. Ellison and hope to work with him on this issue," she said.

Bachmann added that the reform would largely help more people in Ellison's district, but would assist people in hers.
