ACORN Paycheck – $4 Billion

ACORN coming to collect on Obama Support…

Nothing is free in this world unless you are a liberal…

ACORN’s payout potentially $4 billion of taxpayers money.

Wake up America you are being duped… This is setting up for the 2012 elections… Obama and the liberals know the economy will be making it’s normal recovery, regardless of any government plan. They know that if things fix themselves on their own, which they will if the free market it left alone, that they will be exposed as frauds…

So the plan is to pump billions into the economy, under different program with feel good names, and make everyone feel good and think that the liberals had something to do with the economic recovery, thus ensuring re-elections in 2010 and 2012…

The House Democrats’ trillion dollar spending bill, approved on January 21 by the Appropriations Committee and headed to the House floor next week for a vote, could open billions of taxpayer dollars to left-wing groups like the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).  ACORN has been accused of perpetrating voter registration fraud numerous times in the last several elections; is reportedly under federal investigation; and played a key role in the irresponsible schemes that caused a financial meltdown that has cost American taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars since last fall.  

House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) and other Republicans are asking a simple question: what does this have to do with job creation?  Are Congressional Democrats really going to borrow money from our children and grandchildren to give handouts to ACORN in the name of economic “stimulus?”

 

Incredibly, the Democrats’ bill makes groups like ACORN eligible for a $4.19 billion pot of money for “neighborhood stabilization activities.”  Funds for this purpose were authorized in the Housing and Economic Recovery Act, signed into law in 2008.  However, these funds were limited to state and local governments.  Now House Democrats are taking the unprecedented step of making ACORN and other groups eligible for these funds:

 

“For a further additional amount for ‘Community Development Fund,’ $4,190,000,000, to be used for neighborhood stabilization activities related to emergency assistance for the redevelopment of abandoned and foreclosed homes as authorized under division B, title III of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (Public Law 110–289), of which— 

 

“(1) not less than $3,440,000,000 shall be allocated by a competition for which eligible entities shall be States, units of general local government, and nonprofit entities or consortia of nonprofit entities[.]”  

 

“(2) up to $750,000,000 shall be awarded by competition to nonprofit entities or consortia of nonprofit entities to provide community stabilization assistance […]”

 

The House Democrats’ trillion dollar spending bill also includes $1 billion for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program.  CDBG funds are given by the federal government to state and local governments which often contract with nonprofits for services related to the purpose of the grant.

 

ACORN knows how to secure CDBG funds.  Audit reports filed by ACORN’s headquarters with the Office of Management and Budget show that ACORN spent $1,588,599 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program funds from FY 2003 through FY 2007.  It is not clear from these records when or from what source the funds were awarded to ACORN.  It is also not clear whether ACORN chapters or affiliates have received CDBG grants on their own.

 

House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) repeatedly urged President George W. Bush and other federal officials to withhold taxpayer funds from ACORN, including $17.2 million in federal grants awarded in December 2008 after numerous allegations of wrongdoing in connection with ACORN’s election activities were reported by the news media.

 

Leader Boehner also released a study of federal records in October 2008 listing tens of millions in federal grants received by ACORN.  A new updated and more expansive study reveals that ACORN has actually received millions more than first thought.  A review of the Federal Register and news releases issued by federal agencies showed that ACORN was awarded more than $53 million in taxpayer dollars.  This amount does not reflect the millions more ACORN has received in federal block grant funds awarded to state and local agencies which passed them on to ACORN.

  1. Oh boy not another conspiracy theory created by a free-market-demagogue …

  2. I gave a splendorous contribution by exposing your libellous strategy … you should thank me for that …

    • Gilmour,
      That is right, Says me, which is all that really … Are you a moron? Obviously you are so intelligent you have nothing better than to post useless drivel on blogs and you have nothing to actually contribute because you are to much of a stupid ass liberal to formulate anything in your little brain.

      You Gilmour are A WASTE OF MY OXYGEN…

      I am done with you so please don’t bother posting any more idiotic, useless comments…

  3. I went to http://readthestimulus.org and spotted it right away.
    HR-3221 that literally began on October 1st, 2008, written by Pelosi, had massive money to the ‘Community Development Block Grant’ funding program.
    Then, before that HR-1851 Maxine Waters D-CA of Fannie and Freddie Denial Fame, got Barney Frank to help her get massive money into this same program & Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers & Section 8 Mobility Programs/HUD.
    The 1st Stimulus gave $6.5 Billion to ‘Community Development Block Grant’ funding program.
    This new Demogrant/Obama Stimulus #2 is giving $1.82 Billiion to ‘Community Development Block Grant’ funding program.
    There’s also $200 Million to USDA Direct & USDA Guaranteed Low-Very-Low-Income ONLY homeownership Grants & Loans.
    Then the Billions for refurbishment, weatherization, free new windows, furnaces, insulation, appliances for all the low-incomes.
    The part about ACORN getting their hands on that money that’s for the purchase, refurbishment, and re-sale to Low-Very-Low-Incomes aka., SSI’s – ITIN’s – Welfare Mother’s, will probably be given to THEM to get into homes very cheaply.
    Because, those are HUD/Section 8 Housing Choice & Section 8 Mobility (Centiant) Homeownership funds for all those vacant foreclosed homes that ITIN’s could not pay for anymore when their ARM’s released to become extremely high interest rate jumbo mortgages.
    Since October 1st, 2008 when HR-3221 started, the 1st Stimulus Bill, there have been some homes refurbished that were vacant foreclosed from the ARM foreclosures, they were sold/given with nothing down, at between 1 and 3 percent interest rate loans with Grants from State funding for the down and closing to SSI’s and they are already RE-FORECLOSED, again.
    What the Demogrants are doing is they are re-throwing billions to the same ‘Community Development Funding Grant’ program & Community Development money for Faith Based, AGAIN.
    Like a Merry Go Round for Low Incomes to become homeowners no matter what.
    They know this and just wait for the next Stimulus Bill to get yet ANOTHER free GRANT house.
    HR-1851 started on July 14th, 2007, since then the city I work in changed overnight.
    It looks like a Ghetto now.
    You can Google: Section 8 Antioch, California
    and what it will tell you is a brief history and outcome of the ‘Kiss of Death’ for anytown or anycity USA, Section 8!
    And more funding is being thrown at these programs again, in the Billions again.
    This has nothing to do with Economic Stimulus & Job Creation.
    Constantly putting people on SSI into homeownership when they don’t work, don’t want to work, never have worked, and never will work!
    Also SSI’s don’t pay any taxes.
    How do these clowns the Demogrants tell people with intelligence that they are throwing several more billions to make more SSI’s homeowners, while ignoring the hard working lower middle class that’s getting NOTHING out of this Stimulus as the 1st one?

    • White Male,
      And that is the least of it… Every American that cares about our country needs to contact their respective representatives in Congress and express their outrage at the pork barrel filled stimulus’ that are going to be passed… The current one and the ones the liberals are planning and have been softening the blow for with their daily talk of needing to pass another bail out bill or stimulis package…
