Senate Votes to Cut Off ACORN Housing Funding!!!!

The amendment, offered by Sen. Mike Johanns, passed in a vote of 83 to7 and prohibits the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now from receiving funds from the current Transportation and Housing and Urban Development appropriations bill. It marks the third time this year Republicans tried to block the organization from federal funding.


Even the dems are picking this up and figuring this out! You think the ainstream media will HAVE to cover whats been going on now?

  • Works for me. People need to stop making excuses for that corrupt organization. It appears even the Democrats in Congress agree.

  • The only reason it got dem votes is because they have to do damage control. They know acorn is going to really hit bottom soon and they don't want to be on board with them.
