NPR's Julie Rovner reports on the health insurance crisis in Maine, where rising premiums make it harder for small employers to provide health care coverage to employees. The state is considering a 'single-payer' health insurance program, which would use taxes to cover the health care costs of every Maine resident. Supporters of the concept say it would make health care more efficient.
