Creepy or just good marketing?
The fight over Obamacare is heading in a new direction -- aimed squarely at Millenials.
Two new ads from OptOut.org, a Virginia-based conservative group angling against Obamacare exchanges, show a scary-looking Uncle Sam where he shouldn't be -- in the exam rooms of two college-aged patients.
In the first of the two ads, a young woman arrives at the doctor, props herself in the stirrups, apparently in anticipation of a gynecological exam, when the physician leaves and Uncle Sam materializes wielding a speculum. In the second, a similar situation awaits an unsuspecting male patient.

The group's website urges visitors to share the ads in social media, and proclaims, "You are not required to purchase health insurance through an Obamacare exchange ! There are cheaper, better options for young people. Sign our petition and declare that you will opt-out of Obamacare."
