    So you agree I was right. Well done. Since his point was about money supply and debt, the fact it is not government money is important in relation to his point.

    It quite interesting to view how some people view programs like this.

    The FCC, a federal government agency, directs business they regulate, to require collection of a fee, which goes to a program they mandate be provided, basically as a cost of doing business in this country.

    This, however, is not viewed as a tax, or a government mandate, because it's a fee that is avoidable, provided one decides not to communicate by telephone.

    I suppose this kind of thinking provides some insight into why so many can't grasp the impact of regulatory incrementalism on business, and the economy.

    You know, I think the Lifeline program has merit, but it should have been obvious from the very beginning fraud would be rampant. We've seen such "good intensions" go to the dogs here in California.

    The remarkable thing is, if you asked anyone, they would have predicted it.
    No vacation, ocean. Suffered a badly fractured leg on June 3 while on a business trip to Texas, and have been grounded here while recuperating from that. Surgery and then games with the physical therapists...they try to kill me with pain, and I get to fight back!

    Fortunately I have family here in Texas, so I'm doing great. My son-in-law asked me to go roller skating with him, and my son did remind me that I was penciled in to hang gutter on Thursday with his company! How can you not get better when you're laughing all the time? :

    And again, you need to actually follow the conversation, since it not being government money came in reply to comments about money supply and debt. Context is important.

    So you still have not read any of the sources to know what you are actually talking about. Might want to do that....

    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.

    Actually I read the government documents on the program, not a site trying to sell me something, which is what you linked.

    Really? When did he do that? How does he "own" something he did not do? If he took credit for ending cancer, would he "own" that too?

    That is because only one of us cares about accuracy and honesty. I correct my mistakes, you just continue to tell the same lies.
