ACORN writes satirical piece | ACORN accuses Republicans of Pushing Indigent Loans

In total goose-step with Obama, ACORN who receives all of its funding from Democrats through the abuses of our tax dollars, released this absurd press release.  This is another try to deflect from the real issues of voter fraud and pushing home loans for those that could not afford it.  Just check with the bank managers who they protested in front of their homes what the truth is.  We hear how the squeaky wheel gets the grease.  In this case the grease is gold plated with our tax dollars.

ACORN Response to Senator McCain’s Smear Ad

WASHINGTON, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — ACORN President Maude Hurd released the following statement today in response to the McCain campaign’s new ad claiming that, among other things, ACORN is responsible for the mortgage crisis:

“For almost a decade, ACORN, a community organization of 400,000 families in neighborhoods across the country, has been fighting against the predatory lending practices that have robbed our members of their homes, destabilized neighborhoods, and roiled the global economy.”

“In his newest ad, John McCain’s campaign bizarrely claims, “ACORN forced banks to issue risky home loans, the same types of loans that caused the financial crisis we’re in today.” Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, ACORN has worked successfully to help working class families get good home loans on fair terms from legitimate banks and has fought vigorously against predatory lenders who have ripped off families in our communities. These predatory loans caused the crisis.”

  1. So ACORN and the Dem’s forced this huh? Here is the vote of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, that started this whole mess.

    Votes by party:

    Dem’s: 1 Aye, 39 Nays
    Rep’s: 44 Aye’s, 0 Nays

    Looks like it went right down party lines to me, with the Republican’s happy to pass it, more deregulation. “ACORN who receives all of its funding from Democrats”, if the Dem’s were pushing ACORN to do this why did they vote against the bill that would make it easy for ACORN to do it?

    See for yourself:
