In an essay to the Charlotte Observer, McCall stated:
"I believe we need a more responsive and open insurance market. I have several specific proposals: (1) Remove hidden taxes and state fees from insurance premiums; (2) Reduce the massive size of subsidized high-risk pools in auto liability and coastal wind/hail coverage; (3) Repair the damage of Obamacare while finding new carriers for health insurance. Finally, our complicated regulatory system and lengthy approval cycle means many nationally available insurance products aren’t sold in North Carolina. (4) I would modernize rating mechanisms and remove special interests from the decision- making process."
