They will probably claim that they were voting against the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2009 but...
Attached to that legislation was "The Defund ACORN Act".
The Defund ACORN Act prohibits any "federal contract grant, cooperative agreement or any other form of agreement (including a memorandum of understanding" from being awarded to or entered into with the group. It also prohibits federal funds "in any other form" from being provided.
The final vote was 345 to "defund ACORN", 75 against defunding ACORN, 2 simply stated present and 11 did not vote.
Guess who were among the 75 against defunding ACORN? Kucinich and Fudge.
Please, for the sake of our country, for the sake of our county, for the sake of our cities, do not forget that these 2 voted to continue giving our tax dollars to ACORN!
check out these sites for more details:
Even though the Senate/House both voted to defund ACORN, don't get too excited just yet! Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif. said this:
"The battle, however, to deny ACORN federal funding is not over until the president signs the bill into law. ACORN gave significant support to Democrats and Americans must remain vigilant to avoid backtracking or efforts to water down prohibitions denying Federal funds to this corrupt organization."
So now the question is this, we know where the Senate stands, we know where the Congress stands, how long will it be before we know where the President stands on ACORN?
