The “Obama phone” is really a program started by Reagan and expanded by Bush that provides subsidized phone service to low-income Americans.

During the Reagan (and even the Bush years) people could get landlines with unlimited local minutes for such things as jobs, emergencies and basic communication for a flat fee paid for by working people.
Today, the Obama Phones are cordless devices with 250 anytime minutes where you can call coast to coast. As my link points out, this is much more costly for Americans.
Now I'm a guy that works on the road. My company provides communication, but from time to time, they need to call me on my personal phone. I'm also a landlord as you well know. I have to stay in touch with my tenants, people working on one of my apartments, my father who works around here as well, city inspectors, my lawyer unfortunately and so on.
My plan includes 500 anytime minutes, and I can't recall one time where I used over 250. Mind you, I canceled my landline phone a few years ago so like many people, my cell phone is the only phone I use.
Not to bore you with personal details of my telephone life, but the question is, if as a working guy with two jobs, family and friends that I communicate with, can stay well below 250 minutes per month, why is it lowlifes who don't work need 250 minutes every month?
We no longer have pay phones on every street corner. Without a doubt people that are stranded or need help outside of their home need some kind of communication. But 250 anytime minutes a month? For what? To call the welfare office to find out where their check is?
Can you explain the difference to me between our tax dollars subsidizing these phones and a "fee" that we all pay for each and every month to provide these phones to those non-payers? What's the difference? Most Americans have cell phones and are paying for those who can't afford them.
That's nice, but could you possibly imagine how absolutely stupid a group of people would have to be to think that Obama won two presidential elections because he gave cheap cell phones to poor people who often don't vote? Not only is the story just more bullsh1t rightwing propaganda, but it doesn't effect you in the least if it wasn't. You guys are getting desperate trying to convince THE ENTIRE NATION that you guys are anything more than just a bunch of has been racists. You cling to your Obamaphone fantasies and the rest of us will remember the Bush sending our troops off to needlessly die by lying to Congress about WMDs reality. You know, the slap to the face of every brave service man in the country that you fully supported.

So, you think it was a bad idea when George W. Bush decided to include cell phones in the Lifeline program?

"Lifeline was begun not by President Obama but under Ronald Reagan. It expanded to include cellphone service during the presidency of another Republican, George W. Bush."

"House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) tweeted on Feb. 19:“Nobody should be talking about tax hikes when govt is spending taxpayer dollars on free cell phones.” Lifeline, however, is not funded by taxes; it subsists on fees that are tacked on to most phone bills. That fund subsidizes a number of programs, which in addition to Lifeline include telecommunications service to rural and remote areas and to schools and libraries."

Even though I had read about caging years ago, out of curiosity I Googled 'caging voters', here is just one of the many articles from all different kinds of sources;

www.dailykos.com/story/2012/10/01/1138661/Vot...

By the way, there's even articles on caging right here in Ohio. They'll stoop to anything to steal elections.
And as for you harping on ID's, most states that pushed for them made sure to make it hard for them to get them. In order to get a photo-id you have to produce a birth certificate. In order to get a copy of your birth certificate you have to have a photo-id, just another small fact that folks like you tend to skip over or ignore.

hey stupid..........

to get a drivers license you must have a birth certificate.

same thing for a social security number.

if you have neither of above, millions of us don't want it legal for you to vote.

I even think the index finger in ink should be imposed.

To get a birth certificate you need to contact county records.

Stealing elections has been the Democratic way for a 100 years. Elect the man to sign your employment contract is lucrative business. Ask any union employee, public or private.

Hey stupider...
show me in the constitution you fools like to spout about
where it says a citizen is not a citizen unless they have a photo ID.
Your ignorance never to ceases to end.
Don't matter what you want, it matters what the law is.
Funny how in Virginia a photo college ID is not supposed to count but a CCW license does.
