On Thursday, August 20, 2009, U.S. Senator Judd Gregg held a public health care forum at the Salem Senior Center.  Senator Gregg discussed the latest progress on the debate in Washington, and took questions and heard the concerns of New Hampshire residents.  Senator Gregg then addressed the weekly meeting of the Portsmouth Rotary Club and discussed health care with their membership and guests. 

As a senior member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, Senator Gregg has long been a national leader on health care reform, working with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to address this important issue.  He has focused on expanding coverage to the uninsured while reducing the long-term costs of health care, and ensuring that if people are happy with their current insurance plan they get to keep it.  

In addition to being a key member in the Senate HELP Committee negotiations, a participant of the bipartisan health care working group, and a co-sponsor of the bipartisan Wyden-Bennett bill which would provide quality health insurance coverage to all Americans, Senator Gregg has proposed a comprehensive approach to health care reform called CPR: Coverage, Prevention and Reform.  For information on the CPR proposal please go to:
