Now that you see what I said was true lets follow the money. Republicans helping poor people, something is up here, OH look, could this be it?

Almost $2 billion a year now goes from taxpayers to offer “free obama phones?” 17 million phones are now subsidized by tax payers? 4 million Trackphone subscribers are gathered for the benefit of a private company? 100&#8242;s of “free phones a day from other cell phone companies are paying private cell phone companies? Don't know that this was a Reagan program - not an “obama phone” program?“Lifeline Program” is a tax-payer funded program that runs through surcharges on people's telephone service bills - it comes from the wallets of paying phone customers without calling it a tax, it's a "surcharge." But is this a tax?

Have you gotten your "free" Obama phone?(Or did you just buy one for somebody else…?)

A little rant like that tells me you are feeling self conscious about your lack of anonymity on Topix.
Unlike you I don't have to hide. When you speak the truth it will set you free. You have to sockpuppet daily because your lies are constantly exposed. I give you credit for being a good liberal..

Like usual I buy for all libtards. You guys couldn't survive without me and those like me. You are helpless, nothing is your fault, the blame never lies with you, it's always the rich mans fault. Just hold your hand out and I'll drop another nickel in it, that's what we do..

Anyone who qualifies Can receive a cell phone, regardless of how you vote or ideology.
No one expects you to know anything about what you are posting anyway.
Case in point:
The Lifeline programs that begin 1984 under President Ronald Regan is the parent program from which TRAC FONE was created under the George W Bush administration in 2008,
which is commonly referred today by those less informed as the
"OBAMA PHONE"
All those programs were in effect bfore Obama took office!
Lol,lol,lol,lol.

<quoted text>Since 1985, the Lifeline program has provided a discount on phone service for qualifying low-income consumers to ensure that all Americans have the opportunities and security that phone service brings, including being able to connect to jobs, family and emergency services. In 2005, Lifeline discounts were made available to qualifying low-income consumers on pre-paid wireless service plans in addition to traditional landline service. Lifeline is part of the Universal Service Fund.
The Lifeline program is available to eligible low-income consumers in every state, territory, commonwealth, and on Tribal lands. Consumers with proper proof of eligibility may be qualified to enroll. To participate in the program, consumers must have an income that is at or below 135% of the federal Poverty Guidelines or participate in a qualifying state, federal or Tribal assistance program.
To participate in the program, consumers must either have an income that is at or below 135% of the federal Poverty Guidelines or participate in one of the following assistance programs:
•Medicaid;
•Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Food Stamps or SNAP);
•Supplemental Security Income (SSI);
•Federal Public House Assistance (Section 8);
•Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP);
•Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF);
•National School Lunch Program's Free Lunch Program;
•Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance;
•Tribally-Administrered Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TTANF);
•Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR);
•Head Start (if income eligibility criteria are met); or
•State assistance programs (if applicable).
Federal rules prohibit eligible low-income consumers from receiving more than one Lifeline discount per household. An eligible consumer may receive a discount on either a wireline or wireless service, but not both. A consumer whose household currently is receiving more than one Lifeline service must select a single Lifeline provider and contact the other provider to de-enroll from their program. Consumers violating this rule may also be subject to criminal and/or civil penalties.
The Lifeline program is administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC). USAC is responsible for data collection and maintenance, support calculation, and disbursement for the low-income program. USAC’s website provides information regarding administrative aspects of the low-income program, as well as program requirements.
On January 31, 2012, the Commission adopted comprehensive reform and modernization of the Lifeline program. As a universal service program that fulfills Congress’s mandate to ensure the availability of communications to all Americans, Lifeline for the past 25 years has helped tens of millions of low-income Americans afford basic phone service. Access to telephone service is essential for finding a job, connecting with family, or getting help in an emergency, and the percentage of low-income households with phone service has increased from 80% in 1985, when Lifeline began, to nearly 92% last year

LMAO, do you have any idea what you just wrote means?
"there would be larger percentage of the GDP going towards wages"
The GDP is is the market value of all officially recognized final goods and services produced within a country in a given period of time. GDP ...
What your quote was saying; People would be trading goods and services for labor.
What you meant to say is, wages would be a higher percentage of the GDP.
And you could not be more wrong on that either.
EXAMPLE:
If you hire 100,000 people at mim. wage and double your output your percentane of wages to gdp would drop.
So that is the reason he is preventing new jobs, I had wondered why he was trying so hard to wreck the economy, he is trying to maintain percentane (your word, not mine)

Maybe, I didn't waste a lot of my money at the casinos, I do love that Black Jack though. After over two decades of sevice to country and with investments in the Stock Market and real estate I was able to retire in my mid 40's. A little brains and a little luck goes a long way in life, too bad you will always have to depend on that luck..
