Fifteen Republican governors are supporting a GOP bill to provide block grants to states as "the last, best hope to finally repeal and replace Obamacare," The Hill reported Tuesday.

Led by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, the governors, in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, praised the legislation from Sens. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, which ends funding for Obamacare's subsidies and the money for Medicaid expansion — and converts the money into a block grant to states.

"Adequately funded, flexible block grants to the states are the last, best hope to finally repeal and replace Obamacare — a program which is collapsing before our very eyes," the governors wrote.
