    How many Obamaphones do you have?

    How many Obamaphones do you have?

    I have heard that the Obamaphone lady on YouTube goes to the welfare office on a regular basis and gets as many as 5 or 6 a day. However, I cannot verify it.

    You mean dubyaphones? Or maybe reaganphones?

    The Myth of the 'Obama Phone' - ABC News

    But as The New York Times notes in an editorial, the Obama administration does not pass out free phones for votes. There is a national program that provides low-income people with free or discounted phones, but it was started under George W. Bush, Obama's Republican predecessor.

    And the idea for subsidized phone service, notes liberal blog Think Progress, originated under the Ronald Reagan administration after the breakup of AT&T. The program is paid for by telecommunications companies through the nonprofit Universal Service Administrative Company, not through taxpayer revenue.

    1) Obamaphones are given out by private companies. The government does not give out phones. It is a trick used to get people to sign up with that company.
    2) The government does provide a discount for phone service including cellular, which was an extension of a Reagan program, extended under Bush. Under Obama it has since been limited to one discount per household. This was because the Bush expansion of the program had no controls or monitoring and the cost was skyrocketing.
    3) All of this is easy to factcheck, and there are a number of threads on it. Best to fact check before posting. Let me google that for you

    It's still in the Oval office, but I'm gonna get it!
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    How many people don't care?

    That would be a more successful poll question.

    No Obama phones but I have some Wendell Wilke buttons. Does that count

    2 hands, 2 ears, 2 Obamaphones.

    It's only natural.
