    That's disappointing.

    I was looking to get my kids and myself a couple of these to play with around the house and to drive my wife crazy.

    The treatment of the poor in our nation is not something to be proud of.
    And, the fact that we have poor people is not good.
    Why is this ?
    I'd guess that in Colorado we have wealthy law-makers ,if anything like PA, they have a good chance of retiring as millionaires..
    So, for the rich legislators to give out items to the poor they consider to be a necessity and inexpensive....both of which are debatable....is no big deal...
    One question ...have you ever been poor ?

    And to the rich conservatives ....give them their guns, booze, cigarettes and gambling...
    But how on earth did they ever become rich ??

    I live in the so called "Ghetto" people are poor for a reason! They make themselves poor by getting pregnant, smoking dope, selling dope. I mean come on there are always going to be the poor and the rich nothing can change that. The only way to help people is to cut them off and let them make there way in life on there own. * survival of the fittest.

    That is to much of a health hazard Obama told me himself.

    There will always be poor people to some extent. Obviously welfare hasn't helped stop that because there are still tons of poor people in the United States. America was founded on principles of equal opportunity, not equal outcomes. How are poor people being treated badly? We have many charities on national, state, and local levels. I don't go kick homeless people around.

    What about rich liberals? According to this site:
    FactCheck.org: What percentage of the U.S. population makes more than $250,000 per year?
    Only 2% of people in the United States make over 250,000 a year. More than 2% of the population is rich. Conservatives are not all rich at all. I am a conservative who is right in the middle of the middle class. I hate when conservatives are labelled "rich".

    I said 'Unsure' because having a phone can help in getting a job (how will they get a callback for an interview?), plus for safety and being able to call 911.

    For only those reasons would I support it, so if it's truly just 60 mins a month, I'm good with that.
