Two views:

Via the Washington Monthly: (quoting another source)
Ronald Brownstein, for one, is actually trying to claim that Howard Dean opposes the bill because he's a "wine track" Democrat who doesn't lack insurance and hence has the luxury to indulge in ideological struggles.

Brownstein writes that Dean and the "digital left" are able to "casually dismiss" the bill because "they operate in an environment where so few people need to worry about access to insurance."
Via Ian Welsh: (quoting another source)
... I think I’m starting to see a pattern: among liberals the academics and the people with secure jobs support it (even Krugman, sigh), and the people like Ian Welsh who’ve actually been poor, or who know people who’ve been poor, oppose it.
