John Boehner was actually the one who brought it up. It's just under 4.2 billion and falls under the description "neighborhood stabilization activities".

Regardless of it being ACORN or any similar group, how exactly is this "stimulus" rather than "pork" or "payout"?

ACORN's not getting 4 billion dollars by the way. ACORN hasn't currently been promised a penny.

It's called bending the truth till it breaks a few vertebrae.

Oh. Well, with the stimulus thats the only question I am worried about. How many people will it gainfully employ.
