The number of posts one makes, does not equate to validity of claims, or of sources.

Could you please clarify what Bush signed into law related to the Lifeline program?
Further, it wasn't until President Obama took office that the program exploded. That fact is undeniable. It's as absolute as salt in the ocean.
So, for a bit of history, and current results, perhaps going to the source, something the "very liberal" types appear challenged by.

FCC Reports: Major Reforms to Lifeline Program on Track to Cut at Least an Additional $400 Million in Waste, Fraud, And Abuse in 2013; Reforms on Schedule to Save More Than $2 Billion by End of 2014.
News Release: Word | Acrobat
“In his first year on the job, Chairman Genachowski launched fundamental reform of Lifeline for today’s wireless and broadband-driven communications marketplace, and the reforms we adopted eliminated approximately $214 million in waste, fraud and abuse in 2012 and are on track to save the program more than $2 billion through 2014, fundamentally altering the course of the program. This will preserve Lifeline for those who truly need it.”
The facts are, nothing was done to the Lifeline program until the abuse in the program was brought to light. Attempting to award a gold star to President Obama for proactively trying to correct a perceived wrong brought about by Bush is about as deranged an argument as can be.
