    I have heard during the recent elections that poor people could get free cell phones from the goverment. I tended to not believe this.

    I volunteer at a local charity on Tuesday's. Today, while at the charity I saw the forms to get a free cell phone. To qualify, all you need is to be receiving food stamps or be on Medicaid. You get a free cell phone with 250 minutes of free air time a month. The program is called: "Keep in Touch".

    What in the hell is the rationale of giving poor people free cell phones?

    So they can plan this revolution the left-wing Daily Kos Occupy types keep talking about:


    "Hey Shon...Speedway got a special on cheese nachos, buy one get one free."


    "Supp, dog...just got my EBT card reloaded...be right there wit my pals."



    I don't know about you, but if I were a member of the privileged 1% upper-class aristocracy, I'd be peeing my pants right about now. In fact...I think I'll place a call to the Koch Brothers & see if we can't get this stopped right away...got to keep our boot heel on the necks of the working poor, you know.

    You are paying for the so-called free phones. When you pay your telephone bill and/or cell phone bill, via the Universal Service Charge, per bill, you are financing this Program. The original intent of the Universal Service Charge many years ago was to provide assistance (funding) to rural areas to have land lines. It was later expanded to cell phones. I don't know which political party expanded this Program to cell phones, but I object to this. This sh-t must stop. Write your congressman to oppose this charge. Why must I pay for someone else's cell phone? This is legalized theft. BT100dc

    Never heard about the program untill the start of the campaing. And those of us that pay tax are paying for cell phones for people that live off the state. Nice to stay in touch with your dealer / pimp.
