'Harry and Louise' now want health care reform

"Harry and Louise" are back, only this time they want health care reform. The iconic couple starred in television advertisements in the 1990s that opposed the Clinton health care plan. But now the same people are in a new ad campaign supporting reform. "The participation of Harry and Louise in this ad campaign clearly symbolizes how different the health reform debate is this year compared to the past," said Ron Pollack, executive director of Families USA, one of the groups behind the new ads. "With health coverage increasingly unaffordable, health reform is not a luxury, but an absolute necessity, for America's families."
