Obama-tied group targets House Republicans over Trump agenda

By Mallory Shelbourne

Organizing for Action, the non-profit group with ties to former President Barack Obama, is launching a digital effort targeting vulnerable Republicans in the House for promoting President Trump’s policies.

The group says it is going after members of Congress who are “rubber-stamping the White House’s harmful agenda.”

“The majority of the constituents in these districts voted against this administration’s platform, yet their representatives are acting as rubber stamps for the White House’s extreme agenda rather than working for the people they represent,” the program’s website reads.

The program already targeted 25 Republicans after the House passed the American Health Care Act (AHCA) earlier this month, which repeals key provisions of ObamaCare.
