Good move by this Senator.

Let’s see the Dems defend this racket on the floor, front and center.

Like this has any chance at air time, much less getting passed in any form. You are witnessing the most corrupt alignment of government and media in history. Very few options left.

I don’t agree. A similiar move was done in March - vote 53 to 43 with 2 Democrats voting for it according to WSJ.

I think this expose that involves child human trafficking will create a toxic enviroment for anyone protecting ACORN in Congress. Beck has a blockbuster tomorrow. Let’s see what it is.

"Let’s see the Dems defend this racket on the floor, front and center."

Dems?...the Republicans voted for funding this when they had control of Congress. I would say the Dems are run by all Commie crooks and Republicans are more than half, greedy, bought and paid for, socialists at this point. Your faith is misplaced. They all need to go.

This might have a better chance of passing than you might think:
The election is coming and ACORN is now an albatross around the neck of the Dems. If they don’t do something about ACORN, the voters will be hearing plenty about a group that enables child-pornographers...

This is a good idea that I give little chance with Democrats in power. Even if you do get rid of ACORN, the same crooks will appear elsewhere under another name.

They need a RICO investigation and to put some people in jail. Does anybody think Attorney General Holder would do this?

Anyone who votes no on this amendment can have it hung around their neck in 2010 - especially if tomorrow’s video is as big as Beck says.

"Hi. I'm from ACORN. Obama gave me $900,000 so you could get some 'change'.
You just fill out your names and addresses on these cards, and I'll just sign your names.
My, this is your lucky day. After me, you each get new super jumbo subprime mortgages."

Absolutely NOT, thus an attempt at an amendment.

Ahem....my faith is hardly misplaced on the GOP. Please see my profile for further clarification.

I simply applaud this move because it forces the Dems to defend continuing to fund it, publicly.

Unfortunately, that "protecting" includes cowards on our side of the aisle, afraid to be called out as "racists" for the slightest criticism of ACORN.

So, let the cowards try and defend child sex slavery.

Keep up the drumbeat!

Forces the Dems to defend what? They are making deals in the halls with Republicans as we speak to get more “stimulus money”(see Acorn money)to line their own pockets. They don't give a rats behind about your applause, they all all ignoring us. They are crooks and they need to go.

As in Animal House “they even took the stuff we didn’t steal”. That is the purpose of RICO, defund them completely. Don’t just get a refund on the tax dollars that were misappropriated and use to provide criminal training.

Oh I don't know. Their shame knows no bounds. To you and me, ACORN is indefensible; to the dims, just another day at the office.

Buyt if they try, we hang the noose around their necks!

From your lips to God's ears. But so far everytime we "hang the noose around their necks" the knot slips.

Bottom line: I don't mean to be a "Debbie Downer." I sincerely hope you're right. I know the tide seems to be turning and no one will be happier than me. However, my cynicism is showing.

Don't you get it?...the Repubs are on easy street right now...they don't have to really “vote”; with so many Dems in the house. They pick a few guys to make a good “show”...usually the ones who have a safe seat. And then laugh about it all in the halls. It's all a side show and cash cow for crooks right now. This is the reason no one is investigating Acorn.

Your cynicism is based on rational deduction, not negative thinking. If we fail to picket the MSM, and fail to relentlessly pound on Obama, we are finished. The bought and paid for RINO RNC leadership will do nothing to help us.

Alinsky rule # 10; “Keep the pressure on...” This is OUR chance to use Alinsky against these Marxists.

Freepers, let's commit to calling at least one US Representative and two US Senators demanding an investigation of ACORN.

You can get extra credit if you call more than three.

KEEP THE PRESSURE ON!

Hmmm...

Somehow I don’t think calling this amendment, or its sponsor, “racist”

is going to cut the mustard this time.

“Racers” can go pee up a rope.
