The nonprofit group formed from the former Obama campaign organization e-mailed supporters on Wednesday with dire warnings of how deep federal spending cuts will affect them and asking for stories of how they will impact individuals.

"Prepare yourself for job layoffs, reduced access to early education, slower emergency response, slashed health care, and more people living on the street," began the e-mail signed by Organizing For Action's Stephanie Cutter. It included a list of program and job cuts that will be included in the sequester cuts set to go into effect on Friday. 

OFA has previously used its massive mailing list to support the White House's proposals to curb gun violence and promote Obama's speeches and outreach efforts.

Cutter echoed Obama's statements about Republicans' refusal to compromise on the sequester and asked supporters to keep pressure on GOP lawmakers.

She asked supporters to share their stories on the OFA Web site, where they have compiled voices from around the country in a "Your stories" feature sortable by issue and location.

Organizing for Action is under scrutiny this week over reports that donors to the nonprofit will be given special access to President Obama and questions over whether its political advocacy efforts blur the lines governing nonprofits and political campaigns.  A watchdog group on Tuesday called for Obama to dissolve the organization.
