My cell phone bill monthly includes a $2-plus charge to pay for the Obama cell phone program. Supposedly this program was implemented for lower income people to have phone contact for job seeking? Whose kidding who? On July 18, Charles English of Philadelphia was involved in a hit/run, fled the scene only to be picked up later with $5,300 in heroin, and 3 cell phones! no doubt obtained through the program.
This week a reporter obtained 3 also, clearly stating she was not entitled to access or food stamps, nevertheless, she received 3! This program not only costs everyone who does pay for a phone, but is a cost of over $2 billion to the government, i.e. our tax money. Also, over 41 percent of those that have obtained phones do not actually qualify. Its time to stop the program, or require documentation that someone is too ill or unable to work, not just hand the phones out.
