I Got Yer Obama Phone Right Here!

You remember this noxious piece of detritus last year, don’t you?

This is the screeching shrew who encouraged welfare hogs to vote for Obama, because he gives them free phones. “Obama phones,” she called them.

Good lord! The voice emanating from that foul maw make my ear drums melt and ooze out of my nose! If her shrieking, soul-gnawing howling doesn’t make you want to eviscerate her with a plastic butter knife, I don’t know what will!

Now, to be fair, the Lifeline program for the poor began quite a few years ago, and was meant to provide cheap phone service. It was expanded to cell phones during the Bush era, but has literally tripled in cost from 2009 to 2012!

Started in 1985, Lifeline pays companies $9.25 per customer per month. It disbursed $772 million in 2008 and $2.2 billion last year, according to the Universal Service Administrative Co., a Washington-based nonprofit that oversees the subsidies.

TracFone is the largest prepaid wireless company in the U.S., with 23.2 million customers at the end of March and $4.8 billion in revenue last year. Lifeline accounts for about 3.6 million of those customers…

TracFone received about a quarter of the funds from this taxpayer subsidy, and the fraud-ridden disaster benefits Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim.

The program became known as Obama Phones, because apparently hogs who like to live off the efforts of others saw Obama as the giver of free stuff. Kind of like the banshee in the video above.

But one is supposed to be truly needy to qualify for free stuff.  Recipients of the free Obama phones generally can’t earn more than 135 percent of the federal poverty line, which in most states is $23,550 for a family of four.  There are also regulations limiting the free phones to one per household. All paid for by a little fee tacked on to your phone bill called Universal Service Fund fee. Obama supporters will tell you that is not a tax, so technically taxpayers aren’t paying for free phones for these… ahem… disadvantaged.

Yeah… semantics.

You are paying for this program, and it has bloated into wasteful mess, which is where intrepid undercover reporter James O’Keefe comes in. O’Keefe’s Veritas Project uncovered massive fraud in the program, including free phone distributors giving away phones to people who suggest that they’ll buy expensive purses and even drugs after they sell their “free” phone!

More than $2 billion to give away phones to morally corrupt swine, who are so addicted to the public teat, they’re willing to vote for Obama just to get their free cell phones!

Your government in action. Aren’t you proud?

  2. I have a Tracfone, if only because I can’t afford or don’t want to pay the exorbitant fees for some of the other gadgets out there. Since I don’t use it much, my fees are about $5 a month average. Guess I might have to investigate other alternatives to sending money to a Mexican bilionaire.
