    Trump's demand puts further pressure on the Justice Department, which later Sunday asked its watchdog to expand an existing probe of FBI actions, as the White House combats the threat posed by special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation.

(RNN) – The gaffes of the Affordable Care Act website, Healthcare.gov, have left many frightened.

But are you afraid of Uncle Sam stealing your Halloween candy? A creepy Uncle Sam?

Thanks to the latest video from the "free-thinking, liberty-loving" group Generation Opportunity, the reality of signing up for Obamacare is as scary as any horror movie.

In their latest YouTube video "Halloween Horror 2013 – Get the Door, Chad – Creepy Uncle Sam," the savvy social media group continues to take on President Barack Obama's signature legislation, and renames it "Scary Care."

The video features a young man, named Chad, flipping through channels as several intrusive commercials about signing up for Obamacare take over his television and live in an intrusive manner.

Naturally, it all happens on Halloween, as the shady salesman, Ted Teddingsly, continues to bombard him will the Obamacare pitch.

Next, the Creepy Uncle Same comes knocking on the door – ready to take your candy. Muhuhahaha!

Generation Opportunity's featured video page gives a stern warning to signing up for Obamacare with a tagline similar to those in horror movies.

"We all know a bad deal when we see one," the website reads. "Don't get scared into signing up for Obamacare. You have options. Pledge to opt out."

The trailer page for the Halloween-themed video also features a pledge page where their target audiences – millennials - vow to "not live in fear" and make their own options when it comes to Obamacare by signing a pledge to "opt out."

This isn't the first video Generation Opportunity has made against Obamacare.

Their two most popular videos came out in early September, and featured a young man and woman being examined by the Creepy Uncle Sam – Generation Opportunity's mascot of Obamacare.
