Jan R - I have worked hard for years to make healthcare more accessible and affordable, and I believe in high risk pools across state lines for persons with chronic and/or preexisting conditions who cannot otherwise find or afford insurance. Expanding Medicaid is not the answer.
Gail and David: Thank you both for the kind words.

Great questions. You ask how my views differ in terms of rolling back government. I'll offer you this: I'm the only candidate in the race with experience doing just that. While I was with Governor Perdue, we cut the size of state government by over 15%. Georgia now spends less per capita than any state in the country. I was at the table when those decisions were being made, and I've got the familiarity with the state budget to continue to maintain that top spot.
You're also right about rolling back laws and regulations that impact us daily. That's why I called not only for ending burdensome regulations, but I've set forth the only plan to do it: sunset all state regulations every 6 years. It forces a review of them without burdening taxpayers. Also, there are many areas in the Code where we have unecessary, duplicative and burdensome laws. I look forward to working to clean those up, and I have the knowledge to know where they are and the experience to get it done.
I've also put my actions where my words are. I'm the only candidate in the race that not only supports the $100 gift cap, but I'm also one that will impose it on myself whether the law passes or not. I came to this position not because I distrust our elected officials, but because voters in the district want it and I want to enhance their trust in our state's government.
I hope this response answers your questions, and you can always reach me directly at email@example.com.
