WASHINGTON -- Senator Marco Rubio is not pleased with the government's $8.7 million ad buy to promote the Affordable Care Act.

In a letter Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Rubio called the spending "a blatant misuse of federal dollars to promote a fundamentally flawed law is extremely concerning, especially considering the extensive unknowns surrounding the coming launch and implementation of Obamacare."

He goes on to say that, "until critical questions can be answered regarding the availability and type of health insurance to be provided by Obamacare, it is unconscionable to spend taxpayer dollars to promote and advertise Obamacare plans that have yet to be finalized."

Rubio, and other critics of "Obamacare" say the plan is filled with poor policies that will hurt American businesses and limit health care options. "Obamacare" supporters say the law will reduce costs for most Americans and offer coverage to those with pre-existing conditions.

The Affordable Care Act goes into effect Oct. 1.
