Cell phones for people on welfare WTF!!!!
Maybe this has been posted already, if so sorry it's just the 1st time I,ve heard about it.

Government Welfare: Cell Phones for the Poor
why the hell does a person with no job need a cell phone? Better yet why does the gov. want you to have a cell phone??? Check out some key points of this article and tell me what you think.

Welfare recipients in approximately 20 states–with more to follow– are currently eligible to receive a free cell phone with a limited number of monthly minutes. All individuals that qualify for state or federal welfare–food stamps, Medicaid, etc.–and have an income at or below 135% of the poverty level, are eligible. The cell phone service is currently the fastest growing welfare program in the country.
In 2008, the fund that foots the bill for this program contributed $819 million to subsidize low-income telephone services. The fund is projected to grow to over $1 billion this year. That’s $1 billion of over $800 billion the United States will spend on welfare in 2010.

This particular program is covered by the federal Universal Service Fund. At first it received its money by essentially taxing telephone companies that provided long-distance service, with the money then being used to provide affordable rates for those living in less densely populated areas where phone service was more costly. However, in 1996, Congress voted to extend the use of this fund to subsidize low-income households and subsequently expanded the list of those required to pay into the fund to include: local telephone companies, wireless companies, paging services, and payphone providers. (Naturally, the cost for this fund is passed to the customer.) In 2008, the Federal Communications Commission began subsidizing cell phones for low-income households.
So if I understand this right, I am paying more than what I should be for a privlage that I can afford so someone with food stamps can have text messaging? What the hell is that?

Besides the $1 billion price tag, which is likely to increase as more states implement the service, not to mention the concern for growing entitlement created by this program, cell phone recipients are loosely monitored. According to Heritage welfare expert Robert Rector, this means that if an individual’s income increases to where he or she is no longer eligible for the service, there is no one to make sure he or she stops receiving it.

This is bullshit, Im sick of this kind of crap from our government. People with food stamps eat better than most and now they get a free phone to boot?

A lot of people are too poor for a house phone, like elderly people living alone, and they need a phone for emergencies. I'm not saying everyone who gets one of these phones needs it, but some people do. Single mothers who work minimum wage and spend half of what they make on daycare, for example. Not everyone who uses this service is a non-working bum. The ones that can afford a phone, and still take the govt. phone, are obviously abusing the system.

No they aren't. They get something like 200 minutes a month. It's for emergencies, or looking for a job. In my state, you can't stay on welfare unless you work, go to school, are actively looking for work (40 hrs a week must be spent job hunting), or participating in job training activites at Workforce One (40 hours a week).

IMHO:

Another way to look at welfare is bottom to top.
Our government takes our tax dollars, gives them to the welfare recipients, then the welfare recipients funnel them back to the mega corporations/slum landlords, right back to the bank/corps. There, yeah got it.

#1 this is the REPARATIONS president.
He has been doing this since he took office. Acorn gets them all lined up and then when the free appliances, cash for junkers comes out they are ready to pounce on it before it goes away.

The Mormons did the same thing in AZ in 2001. They passed legislation that paid half or more for SUVs. The program of course broke the state rather quickly and got shut down.... but the Mormons had their folks all primed to go out and get their kidmobiles. Us folks slow on the uptake missed out.

#2 The POTUS and TPTB are planning race and class riots at a key point here. They need to have cell phones in all the thugs hands to have flash riots, flash muggings etc.

#3 Who is the service provider?
They probably have a good ole political symbiotic relationship with BeHO.

The government wants everyone to have cellphones "in case of emergency".

"While cell phone users may opt out of alerts from local officials, no one will be allowed to opt out of messages from the president."
