A nonprofit that spun off from President Obama’s political campaigns is promoting the new health care law with advertisements that highlight the benefits of the reforms for everyday Americans.

Organizing for Action posted a pair of ads on its website to highlight personal benefits of the law, such as free preventative services and rebates from health insurers. The ads freely use the term “Obamacare,” which started as a pejorative for the law before the president himself adopted it.

The first ad highlights the personal story of a mom who is relieved that Obamacare does not allow insurance companies to put lifetime caps on health costs, since her daughter Zoe had her first heart surgery when she was 15 hours old.
