Where does NC Senator Richard Burr stand on healthcare reform?

After the passing of the national health-care bill in the House on Saturday, all eyes are now on the Senate. So where does NC Senator Richard Burr stand on the health-care debate? After thoroughly reading his website, I found two things to be abundantly clear. One, he does not support the bill as it is written, and two, he has signed on to a proposal from Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan's bill called the Patient's Choice Act. The Patient's Choice Act is a system of tax credits given to all Americans which would allow them to purchase health coverage. The details are explained by Congressman Ryan in the video below.
