    They know, but they have been repeating that lie so long they might actually believe it.

    The falsehood campaign of the GOP has been very thorough and the term "Obamaphone" is rather catchy.
    However, Not only are they very far from being "Obama Phones" but Obama, or any Democrat for that matter, had nothing to do with them what so ever.
    In fact, the program originated under Ronald Reagan.

    Anyhow, you wont prove to me that the GOP is not just a shill for the mega wealthy and takes on ideology it could care less about just to strengthen and rally its base, and I in turn will not prove to you that it is.
    So, I wont bother trying.
    But I thought I should enlighten you on something I CAN prove.

    Yes I am well aware the phone legislation was passed under Reagan. Reagan had a Democrat Congress he had to work with so to look at this entitlement only under the president in charge is unfair unless you add to the equation the makeup of the Democratic Congress he was working with at that time. But just like all entitlement legislation, it is sold as the just and right thing to do but as the years go on, it is abused. Obama and the Democratic Congress he enjoyed for the first two years proved how such things can indeed get abused. The increase spending in Obamaphones is just one very small example.
