    Stop playing games

    Every working taxpayer who pays the Universal Service Charge on their cellphone bill is funding this nonsense

    These leaches should buy their own phone. I know, it would require getting an actually job and, God forbid actually working for a living, but that's the was it should be.

    It's a tax writeoff, so yes, it comes from the government. That'd be like if you owed me $20, and I said to just buy me a $20 DVD and we'd be cool. So whose money bought the DVD? That $20 was owed to me, therefore it was my money that bought it.

    How much is last years JC Penny suit cost? Does it have to be new?

    Costs me $30 a year to provide a slew of services BESIDES the cellphone program.

    Like subsidizing rural service and phones for schools and the indigent/elderly.

    That a bargain. One I choose to participate in by having a phone.

    Anybody who doesn't like the program is free to not participate.

    They can communicate by mail.
    Hand ups? I have no idea what that is. Are you saying you like giving money to the rich?

I guess you could put it in the name of the company who provides the care, but then you're forcing the client (and his/her guardian who may or may not live near enough to be the one on the benefits cards) to have to stay with that provider regardless of the care given.

    Sorry, just doesn't work as you desire and your knowledge is seriously lacking to have any legit opinion.
    Then why can't it be made out to the company AND the person? Why are you so furiously against preventing people from selling their benefits? Are you even offering a solution or just saying "It's impossible"?

    Typical deflection. This thread is not about banks. If you cannot defend your position, doing things like this only show your foolishness and desperation. Do try to stay on topic.

    I would suggest ****ing reading this

    Is the government giving out free cell phones?

    Yes. This part is true. They fund low end cell phones plans, and offset some of the cost of landline phones. The programs that authorize the phone distribution program are called Lifeline Assistance and Lifeline Link-Up. Lifeline Assistance helps pay monthly phone bills and Lifeline Link-Up helps pay the initial outlay for the phone and installation. The two programs are often lumped together and simply called Lifeline.

    These Lifeline cell phones are delivered through relatively new, government-approved cell phone companies like Safelink Wireless, Assurance Wireless and Reachout Wireless, among others. These companies were spun of off larger prepaid cell phone companies to specialize in the Lifeline program.

    How do you call 911 if yoir kid is choking, etc?

    How much more likely are you to get a job if you can respond from the bus yoi're on instead of the next day when you get the message when you get home after business hours?

    The program is paid for by fees on cell service, not taxes. There's still a fee on landlines for Lifeline service, 911 etc.
    More importantly, how do you get a hold of your crack dealer!

    You didn't specify the end of 2012.

    We know the meme from you guys. Obama doesn't govern and isn't responsible for anything that happens on his watch. You're claiming Obama couldn't do anything about this. Redress is claiming Obama passed reform. You guys need to work out your talking points better in PMs or something.
    Obama couldn't have done **** to make this happen or prevent it form happening. He's the president, not the legislative branch, nor is he the FCC. People really need to learn how the government works before they should be allowed to vote. It ****ing sickens me that the majority of my countrymen think the POTUS is some sort of all-powerful being who passes laws whenever they disagree with his political alignment.

    Also, I'm not redress, nor am I even remotely close to redress politically. Just because we happen to agree that what you are attributing to Obama is asinine doesn't mean we agree politically.

    The government does not supply free phones.
    It was not expanded by Obama.
    Obama implemented a review and reform to reduce the cost of the program.
    OP is a bunch of lies.
    True, but president Obama once took credit for the cell phones, now he owns the debacle.

    Yes, but we only have a conservative alternate history.

    Every discredited manufactured meme lives on as truth, creating a "past" that never happened.

    O'Keefe alone has given us more than one of these "false pasts".

    Partisanship goes both ways, but the abuse of persuasion science by the right is FAR more pervasive.

    The left does seem to have decided they can't beat them so they'll just join them.
