Americans for Prosperity, a conservative advocacy group founded by industrialists David and Charles Koch, has been running ads against the Affordable Care Act intended to wound Democrats as the midterm election campaign for 2014 heats up.

PolitiFact examined claims in four of the group's recent ads, and found them wanting: One false, two mostly false, and one half-true.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
