Organizing for Action, a 501(c)(4) formed to promote President Obama’s agenda, is fundraising off the failures of

In an e-mail, OFA declares that, “In the midst of all of the debate around Obamacare, it’s easy to lose sight of what the law really does — and how millions of Americans are already seeing the benefits.” The pitch then tells readers that the organization wants “to hear directly from you about your health care experience.” It even alludes to the backlash the glitch-ridden has received, assuring readers that “health care reform is much more than just a website.”  

The e-mail provides a link to a five-question survey, which includes questions like, “How well would you say you understand Obamacare?” and “Do you currently have health insurance?” Once the survey is submitted — even with answers unfinished — respondents are taken to a page that asks them to donate from $15 to $1,000 or some “other amount.”

The e-mail says that OFA will spend “the next five months” promoting Obamacare and ensuring that “people have the facts.”
