Where do "Obama Phones" come from?
[link to washingtonexaminer.com]

The video of an Obama supporter bragging about having an “Obama phone” has gone viral on the web, but where do these “free cell phones” come from?


The program is called Lifeline, established in 1984, originally created to subsidize landline phone service for low income Americans, funded by government-collected telecommunication fees, paid by consumers.

In 2008, the program was expanded to support cell phones which quickly escalated the cost of the program. In 2008 the program cost $772 million, but by 2011 it cost $1.6 billion.

I'm pretty sure that Obama pays for them. What a kind heart.

Almost got through that with a straight face. I need to wash my keyboard and take a shower now.

Partial credit.

The correct answer is "From fake dollars printed by Ben Bernaked borrowed at real interest by China with said interest to be paid back by American taxpayers with stolen life, property, and liberty".

wow, almost 3 decades and instead of weaning people off of benefits all we have done is add even more dependents and given them better and better perks, no wonder we are so *ucked.
There are three genders in the US, male, female and democrat. Democrat men are not really women, they just act like it.

I never give RED karma, only GREEN for great posters. If you give me red or green please leave your name, I like to say thank you...

Re: Where do "Obama Phones" come from?
It is not like they are given iphones, they are super cheap tracphones types with 250min a month (used to be 60), no internet, and texting kills those mins real fast. The phones cost like 3 bucks for the gov, if that, and sometimes they are recycled phones..

Some people don't have landline, and do need a way to contact people, make appts, and it is not like there are payphones on every corner like there used to be.

Also, not everyone who qualifies for snap (food stamps) gets a phone. There are additional requirement.

I am sick of hearing about this free phone business.. I am also sick of hearing how your poor check is paying for this. Well, get over it. My tax dollars pay for it too, and I don't bitch constantly about it.

I don't mind helping the people who need it, I get pissed when I see this illegals getting aid and black women with all the gold jewelry, 5 kids by 5 different fathers, and their $300 weave, $40 mani, iphones, and designer clothes. Call me racist, but it is true. Oh, and their kids were dressed in designer clothes too.. Seriously?

When I was a child we hit hard times, and I remember sitting there and saw a woman like I described above, driving a Mercedes, treated like a queen by the welfare people, and was given her aid.. but we were denied even though we had no income and no assets. No reason given.

I don't like my tax dollars going to foreign aid, racist college funds, illegals, but I am not going to complain about it.

If you wanna bitch about something, how about funding Muslims, guns to mexico, losing our rights, and being treated like criminals and put on a watch list cuz you're a vet, or believe we should follow our laws.


Sorry, mini rant over.



peace
