Default GOP defunds something that doesn't exist

oh well at least they could say the got something done

House GOP Weighs Defunding ACORN In 13th Vote To Block Funds To Defunct Organization

WASHINGTON -- When House GOP leaders abruptly shelved a bill to fund standard federal transportation and housing programs last Wednesday, one of the legislation's few uncontroversial provisions was a section banning funds for the anti-poverty group ACORN. Had Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) been able to pass the bill, it would have marked the 13th time that Republicans have voted to block federal funding for ACORN since the GOP took over the lower chamber in 2011.

Oddly, however, ACORN, or the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, does not exist. And it did not exist at any time when the House GOP has held a vote on ACORN's access to government monies -- the group disbanded in the spring of 2010.

There are still many affiliates of ACORN.

The only thing the TP has manged to do is get rid of ACORN, which never did anything wrong -- except help poor people of course.

Big surprise. They've voted 40 times to overturn Obamacare.

Most useless ****ing Congress in America's history. ESPECIALLY, the psycho ideologues on the Right.
