Breaking News: House Votes to Defund ACORN
Over the last week FOX news has shown several video's of stings done at various ACORN offices around the country which show ACORN employees advising a fake pimp & hooker how to avoid prosecution, how to evade paying taxes, and how to commit other crimes. Since the the Senate voted to cut off funding the vote fraud arm of the Democrat party. Today, the House likewise voted to defund ACORN. Amazingly, 75 Democrats actually voted against the idea of halting government funding. Here is a link to the vote breakdown. My congressman voted correctly. Did yours? If your congressman voted incorrectly call him/her and ask if they approve of the actions of ACORN.
Separately, this should not have been necessary. ACORN should not have been receiving any government funds to start with. We would easily balance the budget if the federal government only did things (or only funded things) they are supposed to do.
UPDATE: Several people (including some I tend to trust) have said this is a shell game. Senate voted to de-fund ACORN in bill regarding housing and the House made the motion in a bill tied to student loans. In other words, it is just for show and not likely to make it through the conference process. They are faking concern while it is in the news and once the heat is off the money will continue to flow. The Democrats do not want to go into the next election cycle without ACORN's assistance with vote fraud.
