Bill to defund ACORN would also defund military contractors
    #11117977 - 09/24/09 10:38 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

It looks like Congress is in a tricky situation.

The more precise in aiming at ACORN the law is, the more blatantly unconstitutional it is.  On the other hand, the more broad they make the law to ensure constitutionality, the more other parties who have committed fraud will be affected by it.

Not that there's anything wrong with making these parties responsible for fraud or anything. It will just be interesting to see how they balance trying to pass a constitutional law versus catering to their campaign funders.

Quote:

I spoke with Rep. Grayson this morning regarding the consequences of all of this.  He is currently compiling a list of all defense contractors encompassed by this language in order to send to administration officials (and has asked for help from the public in compiling that list, here).  The President is required by the Constitution to "faithfully execute" the law, which should mean that no more contracts can be awarded to any companies on that list, which happens to include the ten largest defense contractors in America.

More after the click.  I don't agree with a lot of the political points he makes in the article, but I'm interested to see how this turns out.

right, it should be interesting.

America's debt problem is a "sign of leadership failure"

We have "reckless fiscal policies"

America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.

Americans deserve better
