The 2014 mid-term Congressional elections begin in earnest today with an announcement that Democrats who voted for pro-abortion, pro-rationing Obamacare will face new advertisements letting voters know how they voted.

With Americans strongly opposed to Obamacare and its implementation a disaster, the ads will likely turn off voters to those incumbent politicians.

As the Daily Caller reports on the ads that will target three pro-abortion lawmakers:

The grassroots group Americans for Prosperity said the multimillion dollar ad effort will target Sen. Kay Hagan of North Carolina, Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire. All three are up for re-election in 2014.

The group said the ads will run in major media markets for the next three weeks.
“President Obama repeatedly promised Americans that they could keep their current health care plans and doctors if they chose, but millions have found out the hard way that this was the Lie of the Year,” AFP President Tim Phillips said in a statement announcing the ad buys.

“We’re putting pressure on senators who repeated that lie and doubled down on ObamaCare even as it became obvious that the law was hurting millions of Americans,” Phillips said. “The story of ObamaCare is one of less choice, rising premiums, and broken promises. AFP is committed to a long-term effort to stop this law.”



Even as President Obama’s now infamous claim, “[i]f you like your plan you can keep it,” is being recognized as the “Lie of the Year” by an independent media watchdog, Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04), Co-Chair of the Congressional Pro-life Caucus, issued the following statement regarding the “Big Three Obamacare Abortion Lies of the Year.”
