"Thousands of low-income Coloradans reliant on public assistance could get a free cellphone under a plan before the state Public Utilities Commission."
This is along the lines of the federal government program called Lifeline. Just about anyone on government assistance gets a free phone, and/or a reduction in their phone bill.
Is this something the government should be subsidizing? Is this something our tax dollars should go to?
Will people take advantage of this like some do every other government program?
