Stimulus to Pay $5 Billion In Taxpayer Money To ACORN

Last week liberal Democrats slipped into the so-called “economic stimulus” bill a provision to give millions, if not billions, of dollars to ACORN.

You remember 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.

ACU raised awareness about ACORN in the last election campaign. FBI agents raided ACORN offices and is investigating for falsifying thousands of voter registration records. We produced short documentary videos on ACORN; it’s ties to left-wing groups, the Obama campaign paying it for voter turnout and other activities. Worse, we showed that ACORN was actually involved in the push for subprime loans and the mortgage meltdown that has driven down our economy. If you have not seen our short videos, you can see them on our ACORN action page: http://www.conservative.org/acornaction.html

Now, the Democrats in Congress are trying to give ACORN millions – even billions – more of our taxpayer dollars.

We need your help to fight back. We want to flood Capitol Hill and the news media with petitions against these attempts to take our tax dollars and give them to left-wing advocacy groups. Please go here, now to sign our ACU ACORN stimulus bill petition and support ACU on this critical endeavor.

There are votes pending related to this provision and we need to fight back now. Even though the House has voted once on the so-called Stimulus Bill, there are still Senate votes to come and possible final passages as changes are made. We must work to have this removed as the process moves forward. Multiple votes will take place over the next few days as the House and Senate goes back and forth on this legislation.

On Friday, House Republican Leader John Boehner raised the alarm with the discoverey that, 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.”

Instead of providing these funds just to state and local governments, their bills says funds can go to “States, units of general local government, and nonprofit entities or consortia of nonprofit entities.”

Why did the liberals who control the House Appropriations Committee slip that language into the bill? Because the “nonprofit entities” are units of ACORN.

We need your help to fight back. We want to flood Capitol Hill and the news media with petitions against these attempts to take our tax dollars and give them to left-wing advocacy groups. Please go here now to sign our ACU ACORN stimulus bill petition and support ACU on this critical endeavor.

Boehner noted that, “The House Democrats’ trillion-dollar spending bill also includes $1 billion for the Community Development Block Grant Program.” He then went on to point out that ACORN reports filed with the Office of Management and Budget shows that ACORN spent almost $1.6 million in federal taxpayer funds for the grants from 2003 through 2007. Now they are going to come back for more.

Boehner’s analysis also shows that ACORN has been awarded more than $53 million in taxpayer dollars over the last several years. 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.

We need your help to fight back. We want to flood Capitol Hill and the news media with petitions against these attempts to take our tax dollars and give them to left-wing advocacy groups. Please go here now to sign our ACU ACORN stimulus bill petition and support ACU on this critical endeavor.

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.

As our video and other documentation pointed out, ACORN pressured lenders and regulatory agencies to promote subprime loans, a chief culprit in our economic collapse. In turn it received millions from the mortgage companies themselves and in turn Obama’s friends at Fannie Mae reaped millions more in the process. Remember our note last week? Joe Biden’s new vice presidential chief of staff is a former lobbyist for Fannie Mae.

Now, ACORN is set to receive funds from the trillion-dollar stimulus package.

This has to end. The revolving door of political and financial interests that have led our country to economic collapse must be stopped. We must push back against this effort to give funds to a group that has shown it is directly involved in liberal political action and voter fraud.

We need your help to fight back. We want to flood Capitol Hill and the news media with petitions against these attempts to take our tax dollars and give them to left-wing advocacy groups. Please go here now to sign our ACU ACORN stimulus bill petition and support ACU on this critical endeavor.

Thank you for your help with this important effort to shine the light on efforts to give billions to ACORN.

Sincerely,

Dennis Whitfield
Executive Vice President

P.S. President Barack Obama’s campaign gave more than $800,000 to ACORN for voter turnout. ACORN then was raided and investigated for voter fraud, and now the liberals in Congress are trying to reward them with millions-even billions- in taxpayer funds. Please help us fight back now!

Lets not forget that the Law firm Obama worked for in Chicago specialized in ripping off the poor through these Community Redevelopment Scams – Taking money for renovating buildings and then defaulting on the work – See the McAuleysworld Posts on Obama/Chicago /Rezko – Search the Chicago Tribune Web Site for Obama – Rezko articles.

Tony Rezko, Obama’s legal Client, Rezko – the man who partnered with the Senior Partner of the Law Firm where Obama worked, the man who admittedly gave illegal campaign contributions to Obama, the man who acted as a Campaign Finance Advisor to Obama, the man who particpiated in a shady real estate deal with Obama, the convicted felon and Chicago Slum Lord with ties to now impeached Governor Rod Blagovich – made his living off these Community Redevelopment scams – $4 Billion in additional political payoffs to these scam artists? Change? Sounds like the same Old Time Chicago Political BS to me.  Chicago’s poor ended up in Slum Lord dwellings with no heat or light during the Chicago winter. 11 of the 30 buildings Rezko owned were in Obama’s State Senate District.    

Democratic Stimulus To Send Cash To Illegal Aliens

Your Tax Dollars At Work

Stimulus Bill Would Give Payments to Illegal Aliens

WASHINGTON – The $800 billion-plus economic stimulus measure making its way through Congress could steer government checks to illegal immigrants, a top Republican congressional official asserted Thursday.

The legislation, which would send tax credits of $500 per worker and $1,000 per couple, expressly disqualifies nonresident aliens, but it would allow people who don’t have Social Security numbers to be eligible for the checks.

Undocumented immigrants who are not eligible for a Social Security number can file tax returns with an alternative number. A House-passed version of the economic recovery bill and one making its way through the Senate would allow anyone with such a number, called an individual taxpayer identification number, to qualify for the tax credits.

A revolt among GOP conservatives to similar provisions of a 2008 economic stimulus bill, which sent rebate checks to most wage earners, forced Democratic congressional leaders to add stricter eligibility requirements. That legislation, enacted in February 2008, required that people have valid Social Security numbers in order to get checks.

The GOP official voiced concerns about the latest economic aid measure on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss it publicly.

Republicans have already blasted the package for including what they argue is wasteful spending and omitting tax cuts for wealthier people and businesses they say are needed to jump-start the anemic economy.

Not a single Republican voted for an $819 billion version of the plan when it passed the House on Wednesday.

GOP senators arranged a midday news conference to voice their concerns.
