The former Obama campaign is putting up big bucks to defend the Affordable Care Act this summer, months before President Barack Obama’s signature health care law fully kicks in—and more than three years after it was signed into law.

Known by both supporters and detractors as “Obamacare,” the law remains controversial and unpopular, with Republicans pledging to repeal it in full and Democrats fretting about hiccups—or worse—impacting their electoral chances next year as the law’s health care exchanges begin operations.

The ad highlights the ways the Affordable Care Act is already helping some Americans as part of a “major education campaign” by the issue advocacy group Organizing for Action, founded out of Obama’s 2012 campaign. The group is spending seven-figures on a series of ads, which complement White House and administration efforts to build support for the law.
