ACORN To Swarm Capitol Hill for Porkulus Bill
Capital Research Center ^ | February 9, 2009 | Matthew Vadum

Posted on 02/09/2009 11:50:19 AM PST by vadum

An ACORN insider just told me that the group is planning to send hundreds of activists to Capitol Hill this Wednesday to press lawmakers to approve the porkulus spending legislation that would give the heavily tax-subsidized ACORN a shot at up to $5.2 billion in taxpayer dollars.

I wrote a massive profile of ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) in the November Foundation Watch, have written several articles about ACORN in the American Spectator, and talked about ACORN on "The G. Gordon Liddy Show" on Feb. 6.

Meanwhile, the D.C. Examiner has a good primer by Kristen Lopez Eastlick, senior economic analyst for the Employment Policies Institute, on the ACORN-friendly provisions of the so-called stimulus bill.

It’s not like the ACORN thugs or the shiftless lazies they represent have anything to do other than hang out at the welfare office - unless they count whining about their supposed victimhood as a full-time JOB.

They've already sent one of their activists to the White House, his name is Zero.

"Hundreds of activists" makes it sounds like unpaid citizens coming together for a cause they believe in - when in fact these people are paid a salary - with the money coming from YOU.

They're funded either directly by you - your tax dollars - or indirectly by you - tax breaks for "non-profits". Anyone charmed?

“MORGAN: Why I stormed Sen. Specter’s office
And what you don’t know about the “Stimulus Bill””

Melanie Morgan
Wednesday, February 11, 2009

SNIPPET: “While leaving Specter’s office on Monday, I walked past a long line of people wearing ACORN t-shirts. This is the same group that helped get Obama elected. They came to get what the rest of us will be paying for.”
