I see you are having difficult reading the post.
I stated I don't have a cell phone but yet on my landline telephone bill is a charge: Lifeline or Universal fee that pays for someone else to get a cell phone free. This is called a fee, not taxes.
I never stated taxes and I plainly stated I do not have a cell phone.
Is this much easier to understand??
********

Hey R, I just looked at my ATT phone bill, landline. I did not see the word Lifeline, but what I did see was "Federal Universal Service Fee." I'd like to know what that is, for a fact, because any services I get, like inside, outside wiring, call waiting, caller ID or long distance is already listed separately. Interesting wording isn't it? Just call it something they won't understand or pay attention to and here we go!!!!!!

The only difference between now and then is that Bush and Clinton didn't use the free phones and food stamps as voting bait. Obama did. He publicized the freebies and it worked. Free cell phones and free minutes and 20 million more on food stamps. Hell, Obama even advertised food stamps in Mexico to help the illegals figure out how to get food stamps when they got here. Pelosi even said more people on food stamps is great for our economy. Have you ever listened to a damn thing the democrats say? Have you ever watched how they do things? Oh, that's right...you are just a repeater. Never mind.

But first, you have to go way, way back. The telephone business was once a regulated monopoly, which in practice meant the government could tell the phone companies to do things like providing discount service for poor people or pay to string wires out to remote areas in exchange for continuing to enjoy their monopoly. But over the course of the last 30 years, starting with the 1984 break-up of the AT&T monopoly of local telephone service into Baby Bells, regulations have eased as new telecommunication providers have emerged.

The creation of the Lifeline program -- which has now been dubbed the "Obama phone" -- during the Reagan administration was one of these attempts to ensure that the new fragmented and competitive telecom industry still provided the same public goods that the old monopoly did. Far from a government cheese handout, Lifeline was funded through a "universal service charge" on phone bills, and then administered by a private non-profit. While the distinction between a surcharge and a tax may seem technical, it was specifically selected to over a proposed welfare program a straight-up handout referred to as "phone stamps." The Universal Service Fund was created to be a lean, nimble private sector beast.

The guys who came up with the idea for Lifeline were Republican Sen. Bob Packwood and Democratic Rep. John Dingell. The Reagan administration soon got on board, as The New York Times reported on December 27, 1983, in part because of "a growing recognition that the price of telephone service could become a 1984 campaign issue." Then other Republicans got on board -- Sens. John Heinz and John Chafee urged the Federal Communications Commission to "take concrete steps to ensure that local telephone companies offer lifeline programs designed to preserve affordable phone service," according to The Washington Post on September 15, 1985.

Initially, AT&T and MCI attacked the proposed legislation. Telecom executives wanted "phone stamps," and thought a government agency should "target a subsidy to the needy," as AT&T chairman Charles L. Brown told Congress in 1983. But Lifeline backers didn't "want to create a politically vulnerable and unwieldy government 'phone-stamp' program that would subsidize phone service for the poor through increases in state and federal taxes," The Washington Post reported July 30, 1983. Phone companies were already subsidizing local service through long-distance rates, and supporters wanted Lifeline funded in a similar way. Thus a new line appeared on phone bills.

1996

Lifeline was expanded in 1996 in yet another moment of pushing for small government. AT&T agreed to offer more plans to low-income people in exchange for an end to the FCC's last phone price controls, as The New York Times reported September 28, 1995. The Telecommunications Act of 1996 created the Universal Service Fund, which mobile phone carriers had to contribute to. The money collected by the universal service fee goes to the Universal Service Administrative Company, which gives the money back to companies to build cell towers in rural areas, offer service to poor people, get schools and libraries connected to the Internet, and get rural health care providers communications services.

So how come so few knew of the free cell phones and free minutes when Reagan and Bush and Clinton were in office? Why is it that the numbers skyrocketed on Obama's watch? Why is it that 20 million more Americans went of food stamps on Obama's watch? Just admit it...the dems bought America's votes with freebies such as the free cell phone and the food stamp rations. Obama and the dems knew that if they had enough unemployed citizens and enough citizens at the poverty level and enough freebies t satisfy the ho's and the deadbeat pill poppin so-called dads...those people would NEVER bite the hand that now force feeds them. And they didn't. They voted sugar daddy right back into office. We all have to pay for that now.

Elias Boudinot.
He did not serve in the Continental Army with distinction, he did not sign the Declaration of Independence or the Articles ot the Constitution. After being elected to the Congress from his home state of New Jersey, he served as the new nation's Secretary for Foreign Affairs. Then in 1783 he was elected to be President. He served from November 4, 1782 until November 2, 1782. Elias was a classically trained scholar of the Reformed faith, and an anti-federalist in political matters an had a grandchild that became a leader of the Cherokee nation..

The coming Rand Paul-Ted Cruz brawl

New leaders like Cruz, perhaps. The Harvard-educated Hispanic lawyer has already earned plenty of calls to follow the Obama playbook and run for the presidency in 2016. And, also like Obama, questions have been raised about his eligibility for the White House (Cruz was born in Canada to American parents).
