Obama Phones: Look who's paying the costs.

Last year, 2.2 Billion Dollars was spent by the U.S. government to provide cell phones to low income people. Who pays for their cost? YOU DO, if you have a landline phone or a regular cell phone. An extra fee is added to your phone bill each month to pay for the phones and their service. Nowdays, even though it is common to credit or blame Obama for everything going on, he is actually not responsible for the cell phone program. They spring from the Lifeline Phone Act of 1984. Of course, in those days, the Lifeline program did not include free cell phones but gave low income people a discount on their phone service. As everyone knows, Lifeline has since changed, grown, and taken on a life of it's own...with free cell phones and free service...and with PAYING phone customers foot the bill for all this.

Another way to look at it is, the govt. can keep track of people, who they call and what is discussed. Poor mans gps for the govt.
