Organizing for Action Uses Gadsden Flag to Push Obamacare

A pro-Obama group pushing Obamacare is using a rendition of the Gadsden flag, often used by tea party members, on a bumper sticker it is giving away.

The bumper sticker, put out by Organizing for Action, has a stethoscope in the shape of a rattlesnake, like the original flag, but instead of the phrase "Don't Tread on Me" it says, "Don't Tread on My Obamacare."

"This is for everyone who's tired of hearing the other side talk smack about healthcare reform that is helping millions of Americans get affordable, quality care," Jon Carson, OFA executive director, said on Facebook.

"They've spent hundreds of millions to tear it down. We've worked hard to make sure they didn't succeed," he added. "If you're like me, you're pretty proud of that. Want to brag about it?"

The group is a spin-off from President Barack Obama's 2012 presidential campaign, and it often works in support of the president's agenda.

The group began a door-to-door Obamacare campaign in February to help increase enrollment in the new healthcare law.

The Gadsden flag was originally created during the American Revolution, and was inspired by a cartoon created by Benjamin Franklin in 1754 depicting a rattlesnake broken into 13 parts, with each part representing one of the colonies, with the phrase "Join, or Die."

The Gadsden flag is commonly seen carried by tea party members at rallies across the country.
