ALBANY, GA (WALB) - US Senator Johnny Isakson says he will continue to fight President Obama's health care reform plan.

Isakson talked to a group of Rotary Club members in Albany today.

He discussed the economy and the Obama Administration's recent decision to investigate interrogators who may have broken the law while questioning terror suspects.

But the main issue was health care.

Isakson says he stands firm.

"You don't want to destroy the system you have that serves 86% of the public because 14% of the public doesn't have it or chooses not, there are ways to deal with the uninsured and make accessible and more within their reach without destroying everybody else's healthcare," said Senator Isakson.

Aside from healthcare and the economy, Isakson says the most common concern among people he speaks with is the national debt.
