That’s Dodd’s proposal from the other day. I haven’t seen a draft of the new agreement, but the Washington Post is reporting that the provision has been removed.

This is getting ridiculous! Half of sources sited say it’s still in there and the other half say it’s not. How friggin’ difficult is it...it’s either there or it isn’t.

If that is true this bill should die....but it won’t and we the people are screwed by Washington again. Time for a taxpayer revolt.

it’s either there or it isn’t.

ACORN has multiple front groups.

Ok, this is about the 3rd time someone has posted the OLD proposal. Can we fact check a little more before going off?

"How friggin’ difficult is it...it’s either there or it isn’t."

It's obvious that it IS in there...or not, anyone can see that.

I also saw on the Fox News ticker that ACORN and La Raza were getting the 20% of profits.
But, I don't know if this provision has been taken out or not...we'll probably see only when it is too late to do anything about it.

A House staffer reached after the deal announcement was made confirmed that lawmakers did decide to drop the affordable housing fund proposals, which would have potentially directed billions to state and local governments to fund housing projects.

Its out. Please call house republicans and thank them for working hard.

I think before any of us say there is or isn’t ACORN money, we need to see the details of this “new” bill. So far, only the old ones have been posted.

And I don’t believe what any of them SAY....let’s see the friggin bill already!

Interesting considering the following thread was posted twenty minutes ago stating ACORN funding wasn't in the bill.
