    I find it absolutely hilarious and amazing that you're asking me how this program could be reformed. Why don't you try and use some critical thinking skills.

    You also admit why Socialism always fails. As PeteEU said in his post where he called blacks and hispanics "leeches to society", a trifecta :lol:
    from your inability to respond with ways to mitigate the abuse of federal assistance programs i can only conclude you wanted to use this as an opportunity to rant because you have no proposed solutions

    Obama implemented a review and reform to reduce the cost of the program.

    Source is a bunch of lies.
    Snopes.com really? Some review and reform if the program has skyrocketed in price by more than 12 times since 2008.

    From the article:

    The 'Lifeline' free-cell-phone scheme cost $2.2 BILLION last year alone, all of it from fees added to the phone bills of paying customers
    Look I expect all the Obama worshipers to come in here and rationalize this. We get it. Waste, Fraud and Abuse is acceptable to you when Obama does it.

    You didn't read my post anymore than you read the article. I did propose a simple way to mitigate the rampant fraud. You don't want solutions. All you are going to do is defend your GodKing Obama. We get it.

    Yes, because when Bush expanded the program to include cell phones, the cost skyrocketed. Bush of course made no effort to reform the program. Obama...: http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_publi...C-312210A1.pdf

    Sorry you can't get your facts right.

    Step away from the past and get with the present. It's embarrassing. The program was expanded to cellphones in 2008. Bush left office in 2008. in 2012 the costs of the program had exceeded 2B a year and increased in cost by 12 times. That expansion and skyrocketing cost didn't happen under Bush. It happened under Obama's watch. Hell, you even admit this happened under Obama's watch after he "instituted reforms" . What does that say about his competency to reign in and clamp down on Government Programs that are out of control? What does that say about the efficiency and accountability of Liberalism and Big Government Socialism? Don't worry I know you won't answer. You'll just scream Bush until you're blue in the face.

    I'm really not interested in the usual Obama worshipers twisting themselves in pretzels defending everything Obama does and blaming Bush anymore. Step away from the past and get with the present.

    The BushPhones provide a very limited amount of free minutes.

    The rest are on the dime of the user.

    Actually the detractors of the mobile phone program started the 'Obamaphone' tag. The program to include mobile phones was discussed and approved under BushII, the first program starting 3 months BEFORE Obama was elected President.

    I can buy a Tracphone for 14 bucks, not sure just how much of a shoe or bag I can buy with that...

    These phones have little if any value to a drug dealer, he can get far better burn phones for just a few bucks more- it is obvious Bronson has not seen these phones because he would know how big a joke it is to try and exchange one for anything.

    I wonder how much tape O'Keefe had to erase because the salesman said, "Just go away!" ???

    No, Bush left office in 2009. Again, you cannot get your facts right. The reason the cost went up is that Bush expanded the program. Obama, in response, reformed it to cut costs.

    No they didn't. Here is the original source.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpAOwJvTOio

    Right 3 months before Obama was elected President. He's had 4+ years to get it right. Even after a previous poster hilariously admitted he "instituted reforms" the program cost more than 2B last year alone, exploding in cost by more than 12 times, lining the pockets of crony corporate fat cats. That's an massive expansion of the program that has happened under Obama's watch. One thing that seems to be missing in all this knee jerk "Bush's fault" bleeting is actual outrage from Obama Supporters that hard working Americans are getting ripped off.

    I can buy a Tracphone for 14 bucks, not sure just how much of a shoe or bag I can buy with that...
    I'm sure you know how much drugs you can get with it

    These phones have little if any value to a drug dealer, he can get far better burn phones for just a few bucks more- it is obvious Bronson has not seen these phones because he would know how big a joke it is to try and exchange one for anything.
    Like I was saying. From the article:

    'It's kind of like, the first thing that I do is this here,' the TerraCom rep responded, referring to the required paperwork. 'And unfortunately there are people on drugs. They get this phone, and they go get $40. ... You basically do whatever you want to do with it. That's what I'm trying to tell you.'

    Oh I'm sorry Jan 2009. My bad

    If Obama "reformed it" how come costs exploded to 2.2B in 2012? Don't worry I know your answer. "Bush Bush Bush Bush Obama knows nothing"

    So the program was extended to cellphones in '08. Obama took office in '09....

    Definitely Obama's fault.
