They are Reagan phones.‘Obama phones’ given to those who would sell them for drugs
June 18, 2013
An undercover video from conservative activist James O'Keefe shows corporate “Obama phone” distributors handing out the devices to even those who ask if they can be sold for drug money.
The video was taken in May, the Daily Mail reported.
The phone program was aimed at supplying poverty-level Americans with a means of applying for jobs, contacting emergency responders and soliciting assistance for their children. It’s a project of the Federal Communications Commission that’s grown considerably in the past couple years; in 2012, its expenses hit $2.19 billion, the Daily Mail said.
The service is not funded with tax dollars.
This incident has nothing in the world to do with President Obama.
