Obama proves he bought the White House?

Last week liberal Democrats slipped into the so-called "economic stimulus" bill a provision to give millions, if not billions, of dollars to ACORN, the ultra-left-wing group that has been accused of voter fraud and funneling millions of dollars in taxpayer money into liberal political activism and that Obama donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to during his campaign. Now, the Democrats in Congress are trying to give ACORN millions - even billions - more of our taxpayer dollars. buried in the trillion-dollar spending bill approved last week in the House Appropriations Committee was a provision for more than 4 billion dollars to go to "neighborhood stabilization activities." Why did the liberals who control the House Appropriations Committee slip that language into the bill? Because the "nonprofit entities" are units of ACORN.

How do you Obama supporters defend this? Proves Obama bought the White House.

  • samurai_chica: making Obama look bad


    LOL.  Obama and his Democratic Congress are doing just fine on their own.  We are merely pointing our there actions...   Words like Transparency, Accountability, and Responsibility shouhld speak volumes..  Many of us are merely examining the words to the Actions.  In this particular case, I don't see this money stimulating the economy.  Acorn gets 40% of it's funds from the Government. 


    To stimulate, create industry to give people jobs to build neighborhoods....  Don't push money into non profits that do nothing to stimulate America.  This is NOT effective use of government "STIMULUS" money.

  • I knew they were doing that and wonder has anyone heard anything about those arrested for this? Seems to have just slipped off the media radar. I think Obama owes alot of people for getting him in the whitehouse, acorn is just one of them.

  • Yes! Now that NObama is president, he has a slew of people, lobbyist, special interest groups, etc., that he has to pay back. gemgem, your on a roll! I agree, this has just "slipped off the media radar".......why? Because they aren't going to report on anything bad regarding NObama. I haven't heard about those arrested, need to check into that. OP, have you heard?

  • anon 8:59, this is the bill that the house just passed. now......President Obama and the liberal Democrats in Congress have said that they want this trillion-dollar stimulus bill to create jobs in America. What they haven't said is that this is becoming part of a political payoff bill to reward their liberal friends with billions of dollars in taxpayer money. What is sad is that our economic crisis was in part caused by these very same groups who are now seeking to get their hands on billions of dollars in taxpayer funds. A clear transparent pay off.
