Sure it's grown, due to the bushwhacker recession.

The Tea Party Victory Fund, a super PAC, released a misleading ad recently implying that President Barack Obama was passing out free phones to gain votes.

"Keep Obama in presidentÂ…he gave us a phone," an African-American woman in Ohio says repeatedly in the black-and-white video.

The text that appears over a talking woman in the video blames Obama for job loss and the national debt.

But as The New York Times notes in an editorial, the Obama administration does not pass out free phones for votes. There is a national program that provides low-income people with free or discounted phones, but it was started under George W. Bush, Obama's Republican predecessor.

Meanwhile many have worked 45 years and retired and are stuck using a pay-as-you-go Boost phone because they can't afford a real phone.

Make sense?

Never worked get a free phone and text service, worked your whole life and get NOTHING!!

A couple of thoughts along the lines of Obama Phones
1. Prior to the election, the Administration howled and screamed "Liar" when Romney said, Jeep production will be in China. Fiat announced they hope to produce 100,000 new Jeeps in China in 2013.

2. Prior to the election, the Administration said that Al-Queda was not in nothern Mali, as Romney had indicated. Oops, I guess the administration forgot to ask the French.

3. Will we ever hear the real truth about Bengazi? Probably not, Clinton is on her way out and will say nothing to hurt her chances of running in 4 years so the Administration can hide behind that wall.

4. Fast and Furious, Mr. Holder better stay close to Mr. Obama. That executive priviledge thing is only going to heighten the investigation after 2016.

Yep the first 4 years have been grand, lots of lies, unemployment still over 7%, with no relief in sight, the biggest tax increase in history about to blind side the majority of middle class tax payers. Another 4 stinking years folks, hold on!

Indeed, it's really sad those who NEVER worked get free stuff better than those who worked their entire lives.

Just ain't right no matter how you cut it.

If Government wants to give out free 911 ONLY phones, fine but there is NO NEED for 250 mins a month and texting.

NONE!!!

P.S. I know people on the Range and they handed out phones up there as well, everyone is getting them.

Why should anyone WORK???

I feel sorry for you.Would you want your fat ass daughter and her bunch of kids sitting on welfare? Once they get this free stuff handed to them, they never get off.You are one sick freak if you think enabling people helps them.

You hit it out of the park.

It's human nature to accept free stuff. But living off Government handouts is NOT living. The Government runs a plantation giving the residents crumbs.

Only those people willing to work are rewarded with: a nice house, a nice car, vacations, toys to enjoy etc etc....

It's very sad the Government encourages people to not work.

I have to watch my friends go through this. Their kids are all on welfare. Plenty of money for smokes and $30 pizzas delivered, but can't come up with $50 for rent. Us taxpayers pay the remaining $700.
Unless they are cut off cold turkey, they will never change.

Many went through it. Get out of the military and suck the Liberal teat for 6 months on unemployment.

Then cut off unemployment, get any kind of job to pay the bills and eventually get a job with advancement etc.

Living off Government ends up like living in a Socialist country like Russia. Bunch of drunks giving their kids away to US Citizens, how humbleing can giving your Russia kid away to strangers in the USA?

Korea did that for many years but they are nearing a point where they can afford to take care of their own kids, thanks to high tech stuff and Huandias. Hey Seattle will ya check my spelling?? Thaks guy.

It started under Reagan, expanded by Bill Clinton.

Actually, the phone company is continuing this program, which helps the poor find jobs, contact help, keep track of their kids in school, and in after school activities... Hating the poor is a pretty sad manner to prove you're decent "Americans" ???
