President Barack Obama held a town hall meeting at Portsmouth High School in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on Tuesday.

The President defended his health care overhaul at the town hall meeting saying he is no big-spending Obama.

He scoffed at GOP critics who complain about his push to revamp health care, which is expected to cost more than $1 trillion over 10 years.

He told Republicans and other critics that he won't sign a health care bill that adds to the deficit.

I don't think government bureaucrats should be meddling. But I also don't think insurance company bureaucrats should be meddling, said Obama.

Where we disagree, let's disagree over things that are real, not these wild misrepresentations that don't bear any resemblance to anything that's actually being proposed, he added.

The White House had launched a new Web site Monday seeking to dispel what they say is misinformation about the overhaul.
