President Barack Obama’s new Obamacare bumper sticker sure looks familiar.

Here’s how it looks, as unveiled and promoted at BarackObama.com, which is now run by the president’s advocacy group, Organizing For Action.

If the art work looks unoriginal, it should. It’s a play on the tea party-embraced “don’t tread on me” slogan, which dates back to the country’s founding but has been a fixture at anti-Obamacare conservative rallies in recent years.
