So why are they called "Obamaphones" if the program was started under George H.W. Bush?
The government needs to abolish this or just give them a land line. Imagine all the drug deals that go down on our tax dollars.

They weren't started under bush. That's how Obama and the democrats solicit votes from the deadbeats of society that refuse to work. No republicans get obamaphones or "goodies" from the government. We are fiscally responsible and work for everything we have. I'm one who don't want to support the deadbeats of society. My motto is GET A JOB OR STARVE!

Ok, now back to your actual point. Wasting our money on providing cell phones for the dead is a "little" much!!
At least they're not using the minutes provided.. Or is that just a bigger waste because it's prepaid?!
We are screwed!!!!

It's just one more example of good intentions for someone in need, gone quadruple by Government idiots. Of course the "takers" will keep taking free stuff, we need to curtail these type of programs to assure only those in dire need get help. Where do you think they get the list of names? Voter records? Government aid names? How are people getting 10 of these phones too?

So very frustrating.

I also wonder where they are getting these names. I know someone who is on SSI and has one of these phones, but to my knowledge he had to apply for it. It's very basic, 250 minutes, I believe.. But can see the reasoning behind the program.
I am very afraid for the future of this country.

They get the names from people getting link cards, welfare, social security, WIC, etc.

Why are we giving these deadbeats who refuse to work and contribute to society anything? As a humane society we should help the helpless by all means, but "F" the hopeless!

They were started under Bush and Reagan did the same thing with landlines. It's alright to have an opinion but you seem to be confusing opinions and facts.

They apply,kind of like unemployment. You apply and if you are approved you get unemployment/phone. What is your definition of dire need?

If that's true, how do dead people get sent the phone? How do people get several phones?

Dire need? Probably could come up with several definitions. One might be Unemployable vs Unemployed, for example.

My husband has been on unemployment for a month, in the last year, and didnt receive a phone. You have to apply for them. This is why I'm wondering how dead people are getting them. Someone is most likely applying for them, fraudulently. They don't just send them out.

They didn't hand out cell phones. It was land lines. Obamaphones are a completely different program. You get your facts straight.
