Obama Wastes $2.2B On Low Income Cell Phones, Over 40% Fraudulent Claims
The U.S. government spent about $2.2 billion last year to provide phones to low-income Americans, but a Wall Street Journal review of the program shows that a large number of those who received the phones haven't proved they are eligible to receive them.

It's not about the broke people. Think about it. All the shit people in this country need and want all the time. Do you really think the gov listens to anything the people say??? Blame this free cell phone BS on the so-called leaders of this country. not the people who have them.

All that money goes to Carlos Slim (who owns Tracphone), and Carlos gives his money to...research into corn and wheat?

[link to www.bloomberg.com]

Carlos Slim, the world’s richest person, donated to a group supported by fellow billionaire Bill Gates that performs research for agricultural productivity.

Slim contributed research facilities that Mexico’s International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center, known by its Spanish initials as CIMMYT, will open this week, according to a a statement published today on his website and signed by Slim and Gates.


"Improving" our food? Why does Carlos Slim want to improve our food?

Re: Obama Wastes $2.2B On Low Income Cell Phones, Over 40% Fraudulent Claims
I don't understand why they need cell phones either. If it is for emergencies or job offers wouldn't it be more cost effective to give them a land line? OR for that matter, if they MUST give cell phones make it incoming calls only and emergency 911 out going. What is next HD flat screens so they can watch instructional videos for a potential job that they will find some reason NOT to take?
Maybe if they turned the economy off and then turned it back on it might run better. Works for my computer.

Believe me, they don't just use those cell phones for jobs unless if you call drug dealing jobs. They have arrested many people in our area selling drugs and all of them had the free cell phones from the government. Gosh what is this world coming to. They also did an investigation through the local TV station and many were using the cell phones just for drug deals, and for reasons it is not suppose to be used for. Makes me think the government is helping to support the criminals in our communities.

2.2 billion on CIA BUGs. As in when you bug a room for intelligence data. as in secret microphones or video cameras.

As in the recording of data, text messages, voice calls. The systematic tracking of your exact GPS location over time.


All he wants is power and control over every aspect of your life.

Thats why he spent 2.2 billion on a spying device.
