What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Roll back over reaching regulations, free up our entrepreneurs and business owners so they can operate and grow our business and provide jobs. A robust economy creates jobs, gives raises and opportunities for every able bodied person.

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

Healthcare needs to be private sector driven with limited regulations to be successful.

Get out of the way by freeing up our businesses with less regulations so they can function. Less regulation needs to begin with environmental, banking and labor and industry. Government should have lower business taxes and a more fair tax policy structure in place.
