    majority of people (with majority perhaps being as low as the proverbial 50% plus 1) - personally I know several people who are quite concerned about losing the cushy health care benefits for some that are likely less cushy.

    Whether that is fantasy or not is hard to judge, but from talking to them, they simply don't give a damn, or are completely not interested in going from a really good plan (let's put a value of 120 on it) to a good plan (let's value it at 100) so that the 20% of Americans who currently have NO insurance can be covered.

    to me this is not a failure of leadership, it's a good example of where it is really true that "society" is too blame.
