The motivation is said to be safety but really it is to pay back campaign donors.

Not cell phones from Bush. Landlines. Cell phones are a luxury

Actually I never said where they originated. Said Bush didn't give em out. Read first, then speak, you won't look or feel as stupid.

It was originally known as the "lifeline program". It was intended to allow people a phone that would otherwise not be able to afford it. It has been around on land lines for years, usually for people that were elderly and on fixed income. Really wasn't pushed very hard. Until they expanded the program to include cell phones. Prior to that, the land line was not free. What basically happened is that the cell companies realized the large amount of money they could get if they really pushed the free cell phone. To qualify one has to be receiving some type of government assistance. So they started hitting up the "hoods". I'm sure they do the same thing at trailer parks. One thing about the program that has not changed is the "lifeline tax". A portion of the funding is coming from the taxes on cell and land lines. I seriously doubt that the program is being funded by that alone now. Gotten a little crazy with the amount of people on it (many with more than one phone).

Again in pure dumbass fashion you cannot comprehend anything. I would explain what my post said, but really what's the point. You're far too stupid to keep this up. It's just not fair to argue with a mongoloid.

Taxpayer dollars don't even fund this program. It's hilarious the lengths that Obama Haters go to ridicule all the while looking so pitiful. Good try. Well back to the ole "check his birth certificate" and emphasizing his middle name... HUSSEIN!!!!

There has to be some catch..they are either monitoring the phones..or somehow they are making money. I refuse to believe that these phones are free with absolutely no catch at all..

They can monitor any cell phone. If you have a landline or cell plan phone, you're contributing to this program.

So just how is this program funded? By the fruits of the money tree?
