On The Issues
In an interview with Rappahannock News in September 2020, Good stated his support for President Trump's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and the re-opening of the economy, but chose not to comment regarding health care after the pandemic. The Washington Post called him a "face mask skeptic."
Good wants the ACA to be repealed while ensuring coverage for pre-existing conditions is protected. In a debate, Good said, "I am in favor of market-driven, patient-centric reform that protects employer-provided health care, that doesn't make it impossible for employer-provided health care to compete with federally funded health care." He also opposes undocumented immigrants having access to taxpayer-funded health care.
Good opposes the legalization of marijuana.
