WASHINGTON, July 9 (UPI) -- Generation Opportunity, the conservative group backed by billionaires Charles and David Koch, is hosting a "creepy" carnival to show the dangers of President Barack Obama's healthcare law.

The "carenival" will be hosted on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on July 23. The invitation says the carnival will "put the failures of the Affordable Care Act" on full display."

"Generation Opportunity's 'Creepy Carenival' is an interactive event that puts the failures of the 'Affordable Care Act' (also known as Obamacare) on full display. Sold to young people as a benefit to our generation, Obamacare has nearly tripled our costs and unfairly burdened us with new and expensive mandates. The 'Creepy Carenival,' like Obamacare itself, comes with a veneer of excitement, but as soon as you begin to experience it, you realize you are being taken for a ride."

The ad for the event shows a knife-throwing doctor and a high-risk dunk tank with suited insurance company representatives throwing a ball at a "dropped coverage" target. The ad ends with a "creepy" Uncle Sam coming out of the back of a van to no applause.

"They turned your healthcare into a freakshow," reads the ad. "Tell the clowns in Washington to stop taking you for a ride."
