MIXTURE OF TRUE AND FALSE INFORMATION: TRUE: A federal program subsidizes providers who supply telephone services to low-income consumers. FALSE: The Obama administration created a program to provide free cell phones and service to welfare recipients. •The Lifeline program originated in 1984, during the administration of Ronald Reagan; it was expanded in 1996, during the administration of Bill Clinton; and its first cellular provider service (SafeLink Wireless) was launched by TracFone in 2008, during the administration of George W. Bush. All of these milestones were passed prior to the advent of the Obama administration.

The link to Snoopes was to clarify the misconception about the cell phone program. Personally, I see the need to help the poor but I am personally not in favor of government handouts. I learned this from my immigrant parents that came here legally from Cuba and worked hard all their lives without any government assistance. This is still the most unproductive congress. And the therorist that call Obama a socialist should realize that he extended the Bush Tax Cuts - how could a socialist be in favor of tax cuts? Btw, those tax cuts keep our deficts in the red (bring back Clinton's tax rate and we'd be out of this debt fiasco). Happy New Year Jimmy, I hope the best for and your family in 2014 and I wish you'd take my overtures seriously - life is too short.
