ACORN CEO: 'We're on Life Support' (we're praying,, and not for recovery)

 Here's one patient of Obamacare we can all hope and pray dies a quick and painful death. Some other good news is the funding ban looks like it's back on as a New York court shot down the ruling rescinding the ban placed by Congress.

FOXNews.com - "NEW YORK - The head of activist group ACORN came to a federal court Tuesday to observe a legal fight over its funding and said the group was on 'life support' after waves of bad publicity and an attempt by Congress to cut off its money.

Bertha Lewis, the chief executive officer for the group, said ACORN was getting by on about $4 million annually rather than its one-time $25 million budget and had reduced its staff to four, down from between 350 and 600 employees.

'We're still alive. We're limping along. We're on life support,' Lewis said in an interview just after a government lawyer asked a federal appeals court to temporarily block a judge's ruling that it was unconstitutional for Congress to cut funding to ACORN.

A three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan did not immediately rule on the request after hearing arguments. If granted, a stay of the lower-court order would remain in place until full arguments on the issue can be heard during the summer.

Attorney Mark Stern argued for the Justice Department that Congress did nothing wrong when it took action last year against ACORN after it identified 'widespread mismanagement.'"  more

  1. Oh...  I thought your headline meant ACORN was praying.  I was going to ask who are they praying to?  Pan the goat god?  The ghost of Chairman Mao?

  2. I'm praying that God is not amused and takes their 4 million and redistributes it.

  3. I hear ya both.. their office is here now and we're watching em like a Muslim at the airport with a fuse sticking out of their shoe I mean sandals...


Some rules: No leftwing attacks nor Obama supporters so don't waste you're time & especially mine. All 99% others welcome to have your say.
