LOUISVILLE, Ky (WHAS11) -- On the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision that declared the Affordable Care Act constitutional, the campaign of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell debuted a web video on Friday rebutting an ad campaign that touts the benefits of the law and highlights McConnell's efforts to repeal it.

With VH1-style "pop-ups," the video rejects the original ad's claims,  saying "there are some facts about Obamacare it doesn't mention."

While the Obamacare ad touts free preventive care for 34 million Americans, the McConnell video says the administration "robbed $716 billion from Medicare to pay for Obamacare.

The video says only one percent of Americans will get an advertised insurance premium rebate and is painful for small business.

“Obama's healthcare commercial intentionally spins the reality of this terrible legislation and paints a false picture  for Americans and our businesses,” said campaign manager Jesse Benton. “Senator McConnell is committed to repealing Obamacare, root & branch, and will continue to lead the fight against the left's assault on liberty."
