A friend of The Hayride has trafficked with that organization by way of information about how they operate, and passed this along. It went out to the Together Baton Rouge e-mail list over the weekend…

Subject: Message from President Obama
I wanted to share this message below from President Obama because you have stepped forward to make sure your friends and family know the facts about signing up for affordable healthcare. Now, with just two days to go, we need your voice once again.
This is such an incredible moment for our country, and I am so inspired by all that we have already accomplished together.
Thank you for all you do.
Mary Kay Henry, SEIU President
I wanted to provide an important update on our efforts to get Americans health care coverage.
The deadline to enroll is Monday. If you know someone who still hasn’t signed up for health care, tell them to go to HealthCare.gov and sign up right now.
You know how important it is to make sure Americans have access to affordable health care. You’ve done such great work so far, but we can’t stop yet.
After open enrollment ends on March 31, you won’t be able to get covered through the Marketplace until 2015.
Now is the time for people to get covered.
I know life is busy — and after all the troubles with the website early on, some folks have been hesitant to give it a second chance. But the website is working great now: We’ve signed up more than 6 million Americans already, and more are signing up every day.
But we need your help.
Here’s what we know: People like you having conversations with your friends and family will make all the difference.
So pass this message on to one person who still needs to sign up for coverage. Tell them to go to HealthCare.gov right now and check out the options for themselves.
The deadline is in two days. Our health is way too important to ignore — nobody can afford to just cross their fingers and hope for the best.
Thank you for all your hard work,
President Barack Obama

You read that correctly. If you join Together Baton Rouge or Together Louisiana, you automatically go on SEIU’s mailing list. We don’t really need to rehash who SEIU is, do we?
