    Obamaphones Being Sold For Drugs, Shoes Ect. (Video)[W:33]

    'I don't care what you do with it': Hidden camera catches wireless company employees passing out 'Obama phones' to people who say they'll sell them for drugs, shoes, handbags, spending cash | Mail Online

    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

    The biggest beneficiary other than low-income consumers is billionaire Carlos Slim Helu, whose TracFone has collected $1.5 BILLION to date

    One company told MailOnline it will fire a salesperson who laughed uproariously when a woman said she would sell her phone to buy shoes

    Conservative firebrand James O'Keefe sent undercover actors to pose as 'Obama phone' seekers aiming to sell the goods; no one turned them down

    Legislation in Congress would remove the cell phone component of the program, which launched in 1984 and covered only land lines until 2008

    Nice one... a trifecta of hate.

    1) Obama is slammed for something he never did.
    2) Mexicans and blacks are slammed as leeches to society
    3) The worlds second richest man is slammed for making money.. but he is Mexican (see nr 2) and dares to challenge the US in its god given right of being nr 1-5 of any ranking.

    3) Who slammed him? Facts are the facts

    i look forward to seeing your suggestions how this program can be improved to eliminate the prospect of exchanging government furnished assistance, phones, bus passes, food stamps, drugs for other items the recipients want more than the federal assistance

    or are you only going to point to failings that have existed as long as the human race as a basis to rant about Obama


    love the term "Obamaphone", despite the OP's article telling us the emergency phone program was begun during the ronnie raygun regime and expanded to include cell phones during the dicknbush reign of terror

    Right here is where I decided this wasn't seriouis:

    Conservative firebrand James O'Keefe sent undercover actors to pose as 'Obama phone' seekers aiming to sell the goods; no one turned them down
    Please. O'Keefe baits people and that represents reality to you?

    Besides, we all know that nobody ever abused a government program when the President was a Republican...

    From the article you didn't read

    The Lifeline program began in 1984, before cell phones were commercially widespread. Since mobile phones were added to the program in 2008, a Vitter spokesman told MailOnline, costs related to non-land line phones have increased twelve-fold.
    The program was expanded to cellphones only recently which is how the program is being abused. People who are getting free phones have nicknamed this program the "Obamaphone". This rampant fraud has been going on for years unchecked on Obama's watch.

    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

    Obviously to prevent massive fraud and abuse it wasn't necessary to expand this program to cellphones when a land line will do just fine to setup a job interview.

    Not projecting anything... facts are facts.
    Right the fact is you called blacks and hispanics "leeches to society"

    Why would you make such a racist statement

    Yea and it is convenient that the facts happen to be around the rights second most hated ethnicity... the Latino...
    What does his race have to do with this? Your obsession with race is disturbing and you're dangerously close to derailing this thread with your histrionics

    Wait are you excusing and rationalizing this fraud? You're going to sit there on your house of cards, roll your eyes, and excuse outright theft from hard working Americans because you don't like Republicans? Save the Republican vs Democrat Bush blaming for someone who cares about that. I don't.

    I don't really care what your opinion of O'Keefe is. Doesn't change the video where clearly outright fraud and abuse is shown to be rampant in this program.

    The source is irrelevant--it happens or it doesn't. Anybody who believes that people who would shoot someone for $5 wouldn't sell their Obamaphone suffer from a special kind of denial. Probably nothing we could do to ever stop it that will prevent them from doing something else equally bad or worse, but that is the reality. For some people, welfare is an extortion payment to keep them from doing worse.

    snopes.com: Free 'ObamaPhones' for Welfare Recipients

    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.
