Johnson said that Republicans need to move past their push to repeal Obamacare and come up with tangible solutions.

"We've got to start talking about transitioning," he said. “Yeah, you can get rid of the law, but what do you do with what's already there?"

Johnson told National Review that his plan would take into account the structures already put in place by the health care law, such as the exchanges.

"I'm all for repeal,” he said. “but it's there. What do you do with what's there? . . . .We've got to start talking about the reality of the situation."
