Harry and Louise

In 1993, breakfast table banter helped sink the Clinton health-care reform effort, in the form of the health insurance industry's "Harry and Louise" ads. In 2009, Harry and Louise (played by the same actors) have returned, but this time they want a reform bill to pass. "A little less politics, and we can get the job done this time," Louise tells Harry in the spot, which is paid for by the advocacy group Families USA and PhRMA.
