Obama Budget Includes $4 Billion Bonanza for ACORN

Among the opulent outrages in Chairman Zero's bloated, unaffordable budget is a $4 BILLION payoff to the vote fraud racket ACORN.
The $3.99 billion comes from a congressional slush fund known as the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, which is part of the Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) $48.5 billion fiscal 2011 budget. CDBG grants, which are awarded to states and localities, pass indirectly to ACORN.
In the aftermath of the O'Keefe/Giles exposés, Congress was shamed into cutting off funding for this vile criminal organization. But laws that protect taxpayers were made to be struck down by left-wing judges. Not that the corrupt vermin infesting Congress wouldn't quietly restore ACORN's funding anyway.
Think of how many jobs would be created if $4 billion of the loot vampires like Obama have sucked out of the economy were allowed back into the private sector.
