Back in 1993 when Bill and Hillary Clinton were trying to achieve real health care reform in this country, an industry-lobbyist group called the Health Insurance Association of America ran a highly successful ad called "Harry and Louise" which featured a white middle-class couple sitting at the kitchen table spewing Republican talking points and talking about the evils of universal health care. The ad was so successful that it's widely considered to be the main reason President Clinton's plan failed.

But now Harry and Louise are back with a new message. With national health care as one of the most important issues in the election, and with Republicans poised to distort the debate once again, a number of groups have come together with a pre-buttal ad featuring the original actors that demands health care be made a top national priority. The ad will run throughout the RNC.
