Governor Robert Bentley says the president is realizing that the federal health care law is unworkable.

Alabama's governor says the president is realizing that the federal health care law is unworkable.

The president announced Thursday that consumers should be allowed to renew individual plans that are slated to end because they don't meet the requirements of the federal law.

Gov. Robert Bentley said that's an acknowledgement that the complexities of the law are making implementation practically impossible.

The governor said he would like to see the law repealed and a bipartisan group brought together to create an accessible and affordable health care plan.

Bentley, who is a physician, made the comments while on a trade mission to Japan.
