The first cell phone for the poor program could ONLY make calls to 911. Then under Clinton that was changed so those looking for work could list a contact phone number. BUT, any minutes used to MAKE a call has to be paid for by the person with the phone. No actual Tax dollars have ever been used for the program. And since you DO NOT have a cell phone you have NEVER paid one dime for the program.<quoted text>
My problem is why do welfare people need a cell phone, its not like they are awaiting a phone call for employment. If they were, then why has the food stamps rose to almost 20 million people in 4 years.
I don't own a cell phone, never have and I work.
P.S. Nothing about the program has changed under Obama !!!!!!!!!! It's been the same for the past 15 years.
