Dr. Stephen Brier, executive director, of the Little Dolphin Schools, in Scarboro & Westbrook has a problem. Like small businesses everywhere he is struggling to provide health care for his staff. Maine's 1st district congressman Tom Allen thinks he has the answer. A medieval knight trying to slay the dragon of rising costs and the uninsured in this country's health conundrum, congressman Allen today proposed his UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE PLAN. Saying" my plan will relieve the strain on families and individuals, ease the burden on businesses and drive down costs." It would build on the strengths of the existing system, offer new choices and health care security. Barnstorming the state from Kittery to Bangor with six stops in five cities and towns over two days the congressman continues a theme that started in his first term in Washington.
