VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -  Hundreds of people got an update on health care reform Monday from one of the men involved in the debate on Capitol Hill.  

Congressman Jack Kingston is holding health care town hall meetings around his district while Congress is on summer break.  

More than 400 people showed up at Monday's meeting in Valdosta. Kingston says it's important for all of us to understand the various health care proposals and keep talking about them before Congress votes.

"Most people are very concerned about the price tag of this and the tax mechanism also they want to keep their own healthcare so there's a lot of questions," said Kingston.

Kingston says 84% of people are satisfied with the health care they have. He says changes should be made in increments and focus on the 16% who are not satisfied, rather than changing the whole system.
