HOUSE VOTES TO DEFUND ACORN. So the Senate and House have both voted. Will Obama sign?
UPDATE: Reader Kevin O’Brien smells a rat:
It’s a typical these-voters-are-such-rubes stunt; the House and Senate voted to defund ACORN on different bills.
The Senate bill is a housing bill, the House bill the federal takeover of student loans. Each bill will wind up in conference committee where the ACORN ban can be quietly stripped out, behind closed doors and secure from prying eyes. Then the org can keep on doing its important work of voter fraud and pandering to presumed pedophiles.
The most useful principle to hold close when considering members of Congress: they’re all crooks.
We’ll have to keep paying attention then.
