Stop the Funding of ACORN sign now

As concerned citizens of the United States of America, we are outraged that ACORN is expected to receive $4 million dollars of our tax money. STOP THE FUNDING NOW!

The Obama administration has proposed $4 billion in Housing and Urban Development grants that effectively cancels the ban Congress placed on Acorn funding late last year. Many Congressional Democrats backed Acorn's defunding. We want both parties to come together to stop this unethical organization from receiving any tax money!

Acorn is being allowed to make an end-run around the federal funding ban through HUD Community Development Block Grants, which are given to cities and states to help boost development efforts. Instead of applying directly to the federal government for aid, a violation of Congress' ban, Gershon, a Clinton appointee, effectively ruled that Acorn can instead apply directly to cities and states.

We believe that any organization that has broken the law so many times has any right to receive indirect federal funding. The fact the feds never prosecuted them as they should have is what has created the opening for Acorn to put its snout in the public trough once again.

It's time for Congress and HUD to get tough with these miscreants before they do any more damage to our system.

We the undersigned believe that those who have been elected to protect and serve us should listen to what their constituents want and STOP THE FUNDING OF ACORN through this backdoor loophole.
