Florida Governor Rick Scott, one of the most outspoken critics of President Obama’s health care law, signaled Tuesday that he may be ready to drop his longstanding opposition to Obamacare.

In an interview with the Associated Press, the Republican said that he is willing to negotiate with the federal government on implementing the new program.

“The election is over and President Obama won,” Scott said. “I’m responsible for the families of Florida. … If I can get to yes, I want to get to yes.”

“I don’t think anyone involved in trying to improve health care should say ‘no, no, no,'” Scott continued. “Let’s have a conversation.”

States have until Friday to tell the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services whether they will set up their own health insurance exchanges, partner with the federal government, or leave the task to U.S. authorities. Based on states’ progress before this week, consulting company Avalere Health predicts 20 states will operate exchanges alone, 13 will do jointly with the federal government, and the Department of Health and Human Services will manage the remainder.
