( – Organizing for Action, the successor to President Barack Obama’s 2012 presidential campaign and the earlier Organizing for Obama, has sent out a mass e-mail criticizing House Speaker  John Boehner (R-Ohio) for supporting the continuing resolution passed by the House on Friday that funds the government past Sept. 30 but not Obamacare.

“Congress has until September 30th to work together to pass a budget -- and instead of being a leader who finds common ground, John Boehner has put the people with the crazy plan in charge,” the e-mail states.

The e-mail opens by saying Boehner has relinquished his power to “extreme” GOP members.

“House Speaker John Boehner has handed the reins over to an extreme group of Republicans who are willing to sabotage the economy over Obamacare -- and they just got to push their plan through,” reads the message.

The e-mail mocks Boehner’s remarks after the resolution passed when he called the vote a “victory for commonsense.”

“Really?” the email states. “It's not common sense to take away affordable health care from millions of Americans -- and it's definitely not common sense to risk a government shutdown over it.”

The email provides a link for people to sign a petition protesting the House decision.

According to its website, Organizing for Action is not “involved in elections or partisan political activity. Its exclusive purpose is public policy advocacy and development, and in particular, both enactment of the agenda a majority of Americans voted for in 2012 and the identification and advancement of other goals for progressive change at the state and local level.”
