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.

Welcome to our world! The entire country is on ‘life support.’ The ironic thing is that many would argue that ACORN was a major player in the economic breakdown by forcing banks to loan money to unqualified home buyers. Additionally, the reason they are on ‘life support’ is the ‘bad publicity’ they have received recently. Uh . . . it couldn’t be accusations of voter registration fraud, and unethical practices by employees, caught on camera by undercover reporters, could it? Nah, didn’t think so. Ms. Lewis and company may have to learn to tighten some belts. After all, the tax payers who provided much of that $25 million, are at present tightening their belts.

    I really don’t care about ACORN or Obama.

    We have to reform the Republican party before we do ANYTHING else.

    As a selected member of President Obama’s Death Panel, I’m voting to DNR Acorn.

    Welcome to you Rochelle.

    Pulling the plug is so…well..Kevorikian. I’ll settle for having ACORN sign a DNR.

    Welcome to the asylum, Rochelle!

    Welcome to PD Rochelle.

    There is a reason why ACORNs are nuts that squirrels love. I just wish ACORN would go away already.

    I agree that a lot of us are learning to live with in a new means. And less than that even as means for a lot of people is so volatile. I think that all Americans, especially, ones whose jobs are supported by tax payer dollars should be having work shops on frugality.

    Welcome to PD, Rochelle! Glad to have you on-board.

    Get your feet wet now, ’cause November is coming, and I’m sure the rabid leftie loonies will be out in force soon, after the Obawan sends out his Jedi mind-alert and tells them to start crashing web sites with their illogical diatribes.
