Just like the free "Obama" phones he gives out to win political favor and make his super rich buddy the Mexican Telecommunications Tycoon even richer. That way he can contribute more to obama's campaign. Classic Chicago Democratic graft.

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

Actually, the federal taxes and fees we all pay on land lines and cell phone plans is what pays for the freebie phones to "low incomers".
