More Stimulus Money Goes To ACORN Organizations Than To Roads/ Bridges

Sunday, January 25, 2009

Congressional economists say only $4 billion of the $850 billion stimulus bill will go to roads and bridges in the next two years. Huh? Wasn't Obama's Recovery & Reinvestment Act all about stimulating our infrastructure, stopping those nasty bridge collapses??

House Republican leader John Boehner reports $4.19 billion will go to “neighborhood stabilization activities” with another $750 million for "community stabilization" organizations. This could go to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).

Obama really likes ACORN. His campaign donated $800,000 to ACORN. He represented ACORN in court. He trained ACORN employees. He worked with ACORN as a "community organizer"

What did they do for him? ACORN hired people to go door to door to tell people to vote for Obama. This organization, which already gets billions in federal funds, has been accused of voter fraud several times.

Newsbusters reveals where else the stimulus tax cash is going:

* For every dollar that is spent for small business tax relief, $4 are being spent for the maintenance and new grass in Washington, D.C.
* $360 million for sexually transmitted disease education
* $50 million for the National Endowment of Arts
* $726 million for an afterschool snack program
* Office furniture for the public health service
* More money for Amtrak
