I will vote for the immediate repeal of the unconstitutional Obamacare. Fundamentally, the government does not have the right or authority to mandate Americans purchase a product or face significant fines.

I do support provisions such as the portability of health insurance plans across state lines through the promotion of interstate health insurance exchanges. I believe that ultimately competition improves quality, promotes innovation and reduces cost.

I support meaningful tort reform that balances the patient's rights to safe, effective and quality care with reasonable limits that help reduce the cost of healthcare services by preventing frivolous lawsuits. I also support tort reform because it increases access for patients to quality care. We have seen clear cut cases where specialty physicians opt against practicing in states lacking meaningful tort reform because their costs of practicing medicine with malpractice insurance exceed the actual amount of billing.

I strongly believe that bureaucrats should never be in the examination room and I will act to preserve the doctor-patient relationship, period.
