Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., chairman of the House Education and Labor Committee, suggested the vote is essentially symbolic because the student aid bill did not actually provide any funding to ACORN.
However, the language refers to all federal contracts so it applies to any federal money.
Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., who introduced the "motion to recommit" attached to the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2009, said the decision followed a Senate vote on Monday to strip housing funds for ACORN and the Census Bureau's decision last week to cut ties to the group.

You know, if those videos had not come out ACORN would still be on the give me list.
I really don't see no difference in the corruption we see with ACORN and the corruption we see with our government. I really think an organization like ACORN is capable of helping America, but its leadership has been at fault for allowing such corruption to grow within the organization. Much in the same that our government leaders have allowed corruption to grow within the government.
Yes, I think Obama will throw ACORN under the bus. But in reality ACORN is a merely a mini-me. The real ACORN(our government) continues to thrive.
The FBI infiltrates and spies on every friggin organization that comes along from the Campfire Girls and above- how did they miss ACORN?

Hasn't the Attorney General or Gov. of Louisiana ordered an investigation of Wade Rathke, the guy that started Acorn? Though I heard that, but can't find anything about it when I ran a search. Maybe just wishful thinking!
