Sen. Ron Wyden says the biggest hurdle for the health reform campaign is getting the already-insured population on board.

Democrats Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley are strong backers of reform, but they returned to Oregon at a time when polls show public support for reform waning. Meanwhile, opponents of Democratic reform proposals are more vocal than ever.

Merkley said Democrats are hamstrung by their inability to produce a unified reform plan.
