    The Obama Administration has given a former director at the scandal-plagued Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) nearly half a billion dollars to offer “struggling” Illinois homeowners mortgage assistance, a Judicial Watch investigation has found.

    It means the ACORN official (Joe McGavin) will go from operating a corrupt leftist community group that’s banned by Congress from receiving federal funding to controlling over $445 million in U.S. taxpayer funds. The money is part of a $7.6 billion Treasury Department program to help the “unemployed or substantially underemployed” make their mortgage payments.

    Tinman, you're right. If if was 'given to' then it was 'taken from' someone. Mike.

    I don't have much problem with the choice former ACORN director Joe Gavin, to administer this program. After all, who better to administer a socialist program than an ethically devoid director of a morally bankrupt organization?

    I take issue with the program. Its just one more of obummer's socialist wet dreams. The goal is to transfer tax dollars collected from people who pay their mortgage to those who pay neither taxes nor their mortgage. A substantial percentage of the latter group wouldn't have qualified for a mortgage at all if not for market distortions created by obummer's fellow socialists including Rep. Barney Franks and Sen. Chris Dodd.

    Paraphrasing a recent cartoon, "Let me make this perfectly clear. I'm going to give the money of those who didn't vote for me to those that did."

    Sissy, I love your sarcasm. You are right about people getting houses that shouldn't qualify for a Tee-Pee. I was in the mortgage and R.E. business in the early 70's and the rules to qualify for a mortgage wre a hell of a lot stricter. I grew up real pood but wife and I never missed our house payments when we had them and it bugs the hell out of me the way people get houses for almost free. Mike.
