So, you think it was a bad idea when George W. Bush decided to include cell phones in the Lifeline program?
"Lifeline was begun not by President Obama but under Ronald Reagan. It expanded to include cellphone service during the presidency of another Republican, George W. Bush."
"House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) tweeted on Feb. 19:“Nobody should be talking about tax hikes when govt is spending taxpayer dollars on free cell phones.” Lifeline, however, is not funded by taxes; it subsists on fees that are tacked on to most phone bills. That fund subsidizes a number of programs, which in addition to Lifeline include telecommunications service to rural and remote areas and to schools and libraries."

Yes, that was also known as the Al Gore tax if I remember correctly.

I think there is something terribly wrong when the federal government forces private industry to provide social goods for the citizens. That's not the governments place, that's charities place. And forcing one group of people to pay for the non-essential products of another group of people is not charity at all, it's called stealing.

Of course cell phone companies charge their paying users to support Obama Phones. Are they supposed to take the loss? The thing is when government forces the private market into anything, the private market responds. That's why Cleveland Clinic is getting rid of 3,000 employees; because of Obama care. That's why over 16 million Americans lost their health insurance so far. The market is responding to Obama Care and even the Democrats are admitting what a bad idea this is.

The point is what's the difference if the cell phone company charges you on your bill or the government sends you a tax bill for cell phones? Either way, you and I are paying for it.

A smaller fact is that you can contact the hospital where you were born to get your birth certificate.
The question I have is caging illegal or not? If it's not legal, then the matter needs to be settled by authorities. If it is legal, then why don't the Democrats do the same thing? Besides, since people don't bother to contact the polls when they move or die, caging seems to be one method of finding out who is still here or not.
"Secretary of State Jon Husted said Ohio’s duplicate voter registrations have been dramatically reduced, down to just four from more than 340,000 in January of 2011.
More than 7.7 million people are registered to vote in the state.
“Maintaining accurate and up-to-date voter rolls is an ongoing process that is important in helping to ensure greater security and more efficiency in the administration of elections in Ohio,” Husted said in a release.“The success our state has had in cleaning up the voter rolls is one example of how we are making it easier to vote and harder to cheat.”
Husted said that more than 129,500 voters have updated their address online, while the names of nearly 245,000 dead people have been removed from Ohio’s rolls."

I met the lady in Georgia doing the research on all those dead people registered to vote in Ohio. Ironically she's originally from Ohio.

Hey stupider...
show me in the constitution you fools like to spout about
where it says a citizen is not a citizen unless they have a photo ID.
Your ignorance never to ceases to end.
Don't matter what you want, it matters what the law is.
Funny how in Virginia a photo college ID is not supposed to count but a CCW license does.
Actually, in Ohio, a CCW is NOT an acceptable ID.
The 'reasoning' is that it is issued by the county sheriff & NOT the state. HOW GOOFY!! The requirements & procedures were set by the state legislation & the sheriff dept is following state law.
IF someone accepts it to open a bank account, cash a ck,or whatever, they do so with their good graces & common sense.

Yes I am. I'm against a lot of things Bush did. I'm hardly a Bush cheerleader. On the other hand, there are some things I did like about him.

If people in rural areas want telephone service, cable television, internet and so on, they know how they can get it. Why should people in populated areas support anything because people in rural areas don't have it? If they want modern devices and technology and can't get it where they are at, they can move anytime they desire.

I feel the same way about people that live along rivers that flood at least once every ten years. Why should taxpayers bail them out? You want to live by a river, then when the river destroys your belongings or home enough times, you'll move the hell out of there.

But gosh golly, when you git' done talking to yerself', how about them fled overseas to avoid regulation, offshore account tax dodging "job creators"? Holy smokes, their earnings and bonuses have increased exponentially, while us common folk have flatlined. Maybe, by gosh, you are just another corporate fetch boy with a greedy agenda. Yup.

Maybe if those middle class folks had some money in their pockets to spend, the corporations wouldn't flee the country like rats on a sinking ship to get cheap labor to compensate for their bloated desire to cut corners at the cost of humanity.

Thanks for giving me a straight answer --- at least you are consistent in your beliefs. But here's the attitude that drove this decision to make phone service available to all: a belief that we are stronger as a nation when even those in remote rule locations were able to communicate with the rest of us. The cost to string lines to serve relatively few people would be prohibitive for the individual. But a small fee added to everyone's bill made the service more valuable for all of us. The U.S. Mail's universal service was based on the same principle, many years before. City dwellers subsidized rural mail delivery.

Maybe this "we are are in the same boat" idea doesn't make sense to you, but it's been very good for our country in the past.

If a 30% approval rating was something good, the Tea Party wouldn't be so despised. If trust funded corporate fetch boys had their way, we'd all be spending our company money at the company store.

Get it right, you sniveling has been greed driven and racist agenda, shut down by the hard working, tax paying, overwhelming majority of American voters.

How DARE corporations ride on the backs of the working man by hiding their money offshore and not paying taxes. REAL Americans know who to blame and guess what, mouth boy. It ain't the poor and powerless in this nation.

So tell us, since your kind always gleefully drops to his knees for it's agenda, how long have you personally been one of the top 1% earners in this country? Yah, though so.

I want to make sure you guys don't forget how "scandalous" the Obama administration has been, so I will personally fill you in with the documented facts of the outcome of each of these horrendous acts of tyranny by Obama.

Remember how VERY concerned you all were about Obama's terrible Benghazi "scandal"? Turns out the Republicans recently were busted changing the wording of the emails. So the real reason you Tea Baggers were so happy to jump on this one of many proven to be bullsh!t scandals is because...?

It's because your party are not obstructionists and conniving liars and because you guys are not willing to jump on any scandal bogus because you are really just racists. That's why.
