    So how does one get a job again if they can't afford a phone?

    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.

    Oh so it's Clinton's fault now?

    The Lifeline program was actually created under Reagan to help the very poor and elderly with rotary phone land lines. You can't pawn those off for heroin. Maybe you should check your facts before you make a ridiculous post like this one.

    Which explains why Obama closed the loopholes in the program and added oversite.

    Under Obama's supervision.

    I guess you couldn't run away from the fact the program took off like a wildfire in 2009.

    For example:

    1 million Ohioans using free phone program | www.daytondailynews.com

    Growth in the program is fed by the 2008 decision to extend it to prepaid cellphone companies, which get up to $10 every month that someone is subscribed. The number of cellphone companies offering the service in Ohio grew from four in 2011 to nine currently, with seven more awaiting approval from the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio.

    Hmmm. Ohio. Just thinking out loud here. What was it about Ohio that was important? Something about the last election and swing states...

    Like the children holler during a treasure hunt..."you're getting warmer!" : I just think most people would have held out for more, but what the heck? I guess any freebie is better than none if you can be bought!

    How do you get a free phone? Do you just go to a cell phone store and ask for it? Is the service free or just the phone? I just got a phone for my ex-wife whose income is $10,800 a year. Could she get a free phone?

    Even better, how can I get a free phone?





    If we had free drugs, all this complexity would be resolved. Don't need the phone to sell. Too stoned to talk on a phone anyway. Kind of silly idea so I used small font.

    Come up with an honest O'Keefe video and we'll talk.

    Until then your source is a lying piece of ****.

    Yea sure. He's such a reformer that Obama. He has to reign in the candy store now that his election is secured. Your premise is paper thin at best. The waste, fraud and abuse being documented is happening right now. Some reforms you keep touting. Not.

    2008 is still before Obama took office
    3 months before he took office. So what. He has had direct supervision as to how this program was implemented. You going to blame FDR for Food Stamp rolls doubling under Obama's watch too?

    It is, however, dishonest to say the least to put it all squarely on his plate when the expansion happened before he took office.
    I don't think so since he allowed the program to attach to his name and used it as a vote getter. He benefitted from the rogue element of the program.

    That definitely makes sense if you believe in a caricature of poor individuals that includes anything you give them being sold for drug money.

    Yet another example of expanding entitlements, nannies and freebies. We are firmly entrenched in an entitlement, nanny and freebie society. 17 Trillion in debt and adding 1 trillion a year to pay for it all.
