• Supports repeal of the healthcare bill

• Supports revising the tort system to cap medical liability, cap punitive damages, eliminate contingent legal fees and adapt the loser pays principle for legal fees.

“Yes in offshore areas if properly managed and regulated, no in the Arctic National Wilderness.”
