I think the author employs "all". So the reverse of "all" is none / no-one. And "A" employs that reasoning

A. Most bills that have not been supported by even one leader of a major party have not been passed into law ---> the bold part means supported by NONE

E is wrong since it is the logical negative of what we are looking for.

This is an LSAT question from the Dec 1999 (PrepTest 30) test. The correct answer is A, not E.
