11 GOP and Dem governors issue joint statement on health care


A bipartisan group of governors issued a joint statement Tuesday urging the Senate to "immediately reject efforts" to repeal the Affordable Care Act and instead have both parties come together and focus on fixing America's unstable insurance markets.

They also argued that governors should play a more important role in the health care process moving forward, and stated that they "stand ready to work with lawmakers in an open, bipartisan way."

The 11 governors: John Kasich of Ohio (R); Steve Bullock of Montana (D); Larry Hogan of Maryland (R); John Bel Edwards of Louisiana (D); Bill Walker of Alaska (I); John Hickenlooper of Colorado (D); Charles Baker of Massachusetts (R); Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania (D); Phil Scott of Vermont (R); Terry McAuliffe of Virginia (D); and Brian Sandoval of Nevada (R).
