Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval is one of four Republican governors formally opposed to the proposed health care law.

According to Sandoval, the plan would leave out too many people.

Sandoval joins Gov. John Kasich of Ohio, Gov. Rick Snyder of Michigan, and Gov. Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas.

Together, the four governors sent a joint letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan.

The letter outlines their concerns with the proposed replacement and their ideas on what the future of health care in the country should be.

According to experts, the proposed health care law would cut the government's share of Medicaid in Nevada.

The governors say this would break President Trump's pledge to provide states with ample Medicaid resources and flexibility.

They also agreed on stabilizing a private insurance market, among other topics.

"We stand ready to work with you to develop a proposal that is both fiscally sound and provides affordable coverage for our most vulnerable citizens," they said in conclusion.
