I took your advice and learned that you are v e r y uninformed...<quoted text>
Everyone who receives a telephone bill with either Lifeline fee or Universal fee or both, this is a mandated charge by our government to pay for anyone legal or illegal to receive free cell phones with a criteria in which---you receive food stamps or welfare or income below poverty level or all three.We are paying for free cell phones to mostly non-working, lazy deadbeats plus a percentage of their cell phone bill is paid for also.
No say-so from the citizens who are paying for others to receive free. Another Taxation without Representation.
Since Obama is government, he most certainly has alot to do with it.

Thousands of conservatives are telling jokes about the #ObamaPhone.
There is one problem with the Obama Phone: It doesnt exist.
Since 2009, there has been an urban myth that Obama created a program to provide free phones to low-income Americans at taxpayer expense. There is, in fact, a government program that will provide low-income people with a free or low cost cell phone. It was started in 2008 under George W. Bush.
The idea of providing low-income individuals with subsidized phone service was originated in the Reagan administration following the break-up of AT&T in 1984.(It was expanded and formalized by the Telecommunications Act of 1996.) The program is paid for by telecommunications companies through an independent non-profit, not through tax revenue
