Many people are concerned about ACORN's role in election fraud, the banking collapse and campaigns against businesses' rights and freedoms. ACORN activities have delivered approximately $15 billion in direct monetary benefits to their membership and constituency over the past 10 years. With the bailout Obama is proposing, we know that he will pay back his ACORN activists that helped him get elected. The real question is: How Much? How many of the tax dollars that hard-working people have paid into the federal government will go to paying off ACORN? We know it won't come in direct payment, but in "backdoor deals". Other organizations will receive this money, and they, in turn, will funnel it to ACORN. Much like the Obama campaign giving over $800,000 to an association with, conveniently, close ties to ACORN.

We need have an organization the represents the workingman. An organization that watches out for the taxpayer and watches how government is spending workers' money. This organization could work to protect the rights of businesses, ensuring a strong economy and good jobs. It would need to educate workers on important issues about the spending of their tax dollars. This organization would also organize voter registration and voting drives to ensure the workingman has a voice in the process of electing the officials in charge of spending their money. This organization could be known as:
