Ex-ACORN Operatives Helping Out In Rollout Of ObamaCare

A group formed from the ruins of ACORN is hard at work signing people up for ObamaCare, and may be collecting taxpayer cash for their work despite Congress' efforts to cut the organization and its affiliates off from government funding, a watchdog group charged.

The United Labor Unions Council Local 100, a New Orleans-based nonprofit, announced last month it would take part in a multi-state "navigator" drive to help people enroll in President Obama's health care plan. The labor council was established by ACORN founder Wade Rathke after his larger group was broken up amid scandal in 2009 and banned from receiving taxpayer funds.

“At a time when our government has ceased functioning due to an appropriations gap, it is ironic that America’s tax dollars are being doled out to an entity whose poor stewardship of our funds was well-established by Congress,” said Dan Epstein, executive director of Cause of Action, a nonpartisan watchdog group based in Washington.

ACORNS nothing but a bunch of loser twits who couldn't get a real job if their life depended on it. A bunch of nothings who are only proficient at pathological lying. If one came up to me I would take great pleasure in spitting right in their putrid face and if I got arrested so be it. It would be worth it because they are deserving of nothing more.

7:47 These are Obama's people. Most of them worked with him when he was a community organizer. They are racist, hate white's and Mexicans, but love Muslims.
