Stimulus bill filled with political payoffs and corruption

Posted by iusbvision on January 27, 2009

Remember ACORN – this is the vote fraud outfit that also uses your tax dollars for partisan purposes and when Obama worked for ACORN he and they pressured banks to give bad loans which was one of the small steps that lead to the mortgage crisis. We explained in a recent post why social spending doesn’t help the economy much because the money is spent for political and corruption reasons rather than economic ones.

FN:

Republican lawmakers are raising concerns that ACORN, the low-income advocacy group under investigation for voter registration fraud, could be eligible for billions in aid from the economic stimulus proposal working its way through the House. 

House Republican Leader John Boehner issued a statement over the weekend noting that the stimulus bill wending its way through Congress provides $4.19 billion for “neighborhood stabilization activities.” 

He said the money was previously limited to state and local governments, but that Democrats now want part of it to be available to non-profit entities. That means groups like ACORN would be eligible for a portion of the funds.  

Sen. David Vitter, R-La., told FOX News Tuesday that the money could be seen as “payoff” for groups’ political activities in the last election. ACORN generally supports Democratic candidates and actively backed President Obama last year [and skirted the law using taxpayer funds to do it – editor]. 

But he said the funding is just one example of frivolous spending items in the $825 billion package. 

“It’s just a long list of spending items. Not a real economic stimulus job creation bill,” Vitter said. “It’s line after line after line of favorite liberal spending programs, and it amounts to a big government bill — not a job creation bill.”

Would a president Palin allow this kind of corruption in her own party?
