The Governor does say he, and 100% of republicans, agree Obamacare needs to repealed.  Bevin says he appreciates the sense of urgency to replace the law.

“There have been proposals and conversations going on for years and years.  Now, those conversations are being reconciled and brought to the forefront,” Bevin said.

The Governor says he does not think his party members in Congress are moving too quickly to replace Obamacare.
