Americans for Prosperity has released TV ads against two freshman congressmen to hold them accountable for supporting Obamacare.

The tea party group announced Thursday that it has spent more than $600,000 on the ad buy targeting Reps. Rick Nolan of Minnesota and Ann McLane Kuster of New Hampshire. This is in addition to the more than $16 million that Americans for Prosperity has already spent in ads against Democratic lawmakers across the country.

"Months after the problematic rollout, Americans are starting to feel the true impact of Obamacare," said Tim Phillips, AFP President. "They're getting less choice, more problems and higher insurance premiums."

"Politifact rated President Obama's broken promise the 'lie of the year,' and yet some politicians continue to stand by this law that is hurting the very people it was supposed to help," he added.

President Barack Obama's declaration that if someone liked their health insurance plan, they could keep it is the focal point of the Nolan ad.

Story continues below video.

"140,000 Minnesotans have already lost their coverage," the narrator says. It then features a man who says that he was one of those people.

While Nolan wasn't in Congress when Obamacare was passed, the ad explains that "Congressman Rick Nolan voted to keep it."

The ad against Kuster features a single woman who says that the problem with Obamacare isn't a broken website, it's about people who have lost their health insurance.

Story continues below video.

"Millions of people have lost their health insurance, millions of people can't see their own doctors and millions are paying more and getting less," she says. "Obamacare doesn't work. It just doesn't work."

The ad campaign will also be accompanied by radio and digital versions of the ads.

Both Nolan and Kuster took office in 2012, defeating Republican incumbents.
