10. Yes, most Americans believe, as we do, that real health-care reform is needed. And yes, certain
proposals in the plan are supported by the public.

However, a solid majority of Americans opposes the massive health-reform plan.

Maybe that is too complicated for you. Try this:

People want health care reform.
People do not see health care reform in THIS bill.
People oppose THIS bill.

After they've delayed and delayed for months, suddenly we URGENTLY need to pass THIS bill, which the majority of the people don't want.

The DLCers have brought this down on us, and WE will feel the results.
