Organizing for Action launches new Web video to hit Republicans on shutdown

September 25, 2013

Organizing for Action, the campaign organization set up to support President Obama's agenda, launched a new Web video on Wednesday to pressure Republicans to agree to a bill that keeps the government open on Sept. 30 without defunding Obama's health care law.

The video, which features voters expressing exasperation with the fact that Republicans are demanding to defund Obamacare in order to fund the government, is the latest example of how Democrats to trying to gain politically from the unrest in the GOP that is bringing the government closer to a shutdown.

OFA is taking other actions, too. On Wednesday, the organization is planning rallies at lawmakers home offices to pressure them to vote for a clean bill funding the government. They've launched other web videos and used Twitter to blast the messages to Obama's millions of followers.
