A shrinking percentage of Americans said they were completely satisfied with the health insurance offered by their employers, according to a Gallup Poll. That number was 27%, the lowest percentage since 1989, when Gallup first asked the question, and down from 39% last year. The telephone survey of 1,001 adults, conducted earlier this month, indicated that rising premiums and poorer overall coverage might be playing a role. Overall, about six in 10 respondents said they were satisfied with the insurance offered by their employers and 27% said they were not. In about 13% of cases, the question wasn't applicable. -- by Michael Romano
