'Harry and Louise' Icons Return To Promote Health Care Reform In New Ad

Five Organizations Come Together to Promote Health Care Reform as the Top

Domestic Priority for the Next President and Congress

WASHINGTON, Aug. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Harry and Louise, the iconic couple featured in ads to defeat health care reform in 1993-1994, will be back on television to demand that health care reform return to the top of the agenda.

Airing throughout the Democratic and Republican conventions, the famous couple at the kitchen table will remind America that they are still waiting "for a better way."

The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), the American Hospital Association (AHA), the Catholic Health Association (CHA), Families USA, and the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), organizations with historically divergent views about health care reform, have come together to sponsor the advertisement.
