Last night, defying the will of a bipartisan majority of the House and Senate, Democrats voted to allow the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) to receive federal taxpayer dollars.—Rep. John BoehnerThey’re Baaack! Oh it’s not like they ever left but while the American people are preoccupied with Democrats’ Fascist efforts to force Comprehensive Health Care and Cap and Trade taxes on the America people Democrats also thought they’d slip ACORN their complete funding back while you weren’t looking.
You already know that the Barry Hussein Soetoro Justice Department disallowed a presidential order to defund ACORN. (see previous post)
It’s reported by Rep. John Boehner that Rep. Tom Latham (R-IA) attempted to offered an amendment during deliberations on the Democrats’ massive year-end appropriations bill to clarify the prohibition on federal funds going to ACORN or its subsidiaries. That amendment was shot down on a 5-9 party line vote as Republicans sided with taxpayers while Democrats stood with ACORN, five Republicans for the amendment Nine Democrats against the amendment.
What that means is Democrats support AG Eric Holder’s office decision to continue to fund ACORN whether Americans like it or not. (see story)
Rep Boehner reported that Rep. Latham’s amendment is necessary to prevent taxpayer money from going to ACORN because the Obama Administration’s Department of Justice has taken advantage of a legal loophole to allow ACORN to continue to receive federal funds – despite the passage of the House GOP’s Defund ACORN Act in the fall.
Please let it be known that your are outraged that your Government would knowingly fund what has been described as a continuing criminal enterprise that is currently been sued in courts across the United States of America for voters fund in the 2008 elections.
The America people do not what their government associated with overt corruption and criminal wrong doing and if there are elements presently in our government that find such associations acceptable these people should be identified and summarily dismissed.
