Congress Voting To Defund ACORN

Man! When Glenn Beck and a team of two undercover journalists prove to be more effective than all of the big Media outlets combined, you know that the story had to be a big one!

Here are two more stories concerning ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) that isn’t getting much notice from NBC, ABC, CBS or CNN.

That motion, the Johanns Amendment to HR2355, passed 83-7 with the 7 “nay” votes all coming from Dems.

House GOP To Call For Total Cutoff Of Federal Funds To ACORN

Two things to note here. One: Congress thinks that this is a big enough story to vote on removing funding to ACORN. Two: It is the GOP calling for a House vote to defund ACORN, not the Dems.

(BTW, I’ll bet that the incompetent Charlie Gibson didn’t know about these stories either!)

Whatever happened to Nancy Pelosi’s promise to get rid of the Culture of Corruption in Washington? From what I saw in those videos, ACORN is certainly a good place to begin the cleaning process!

But defunding a vile and corrupt organization isn’t enough. There needs to be a thorough investigation of ACORN and any other organization that worked with ACORN so that we can see exactly how far the corruption extends.

Planned Parenthood CEO Makes $1 Million Per Year

Our socialist president and his socialist allies in Congress have adopted the Marxist policiy of limiting how much money the CEOs of banks that receive Federal money can make per year. But, it shows that they have a double-standard when it comes to their political allies.

Corporate America has one set of very high standards applied (Like the bank CEOs) but anyone who espouses the leftist ideology of Barack Obama or Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid gets a much lower set of standards.

For example, Planned Parenthood, the abortion mill outfit that seeks to hide the rapes of 13-year-old girls, gets federal money just like the banking industry. But, the CEO of PP gets to make $1 million per year and has no limits put on his compensation.

From VirtueOnline:

Readers may be surprised to learn that Planned Parenthood nationally has plenty of money and taxpayers are contributing a large part of it. According to its own 2006-07 annual report, Planned Parenthood took in more than a billion dollars, and boasted a surplus of $80 million. One-third of its income–$336 million-came from government subsidies. Its president received about $1 million in compensation. Why pay more of our own money for practices that don’t work and some of which involve what most Americans consider to be immoral?

If PP gets one-third of their fundng from American tax dollars, shouldn’t their executives face the same compensations limits that are being applied to others that receive federal monies? That would be a fair application of a standard.

Once again, we can see exactly how hypocritical the Democrats are. One set of low standards for themselves and their allies, one set of very high standards for the rest of us.
