Obama Phone Still Here, Honey: Hey, Druggies Are People Too

ObamaPhone-LadyAs liberals will hasten to point out, Obama Phone didn’t start with Obama, it began under Ronald Reagan and has been in effect since 1984. It then was morphed into the SafeLink program under George W. Bush.

You know, a chicken in every pot and a car in every garage yada yada yada…

And, as with all things Republicans do to show that they are just as compassionate as liberals, it has had massive unintended consequences. Or intended. Whatever. Dude, I’m telling you, there ought to be a written test to be Republican.

The Daily Mail via Drudge:

Undercover video shot in May by a conservative activist shows two corporate distributors of free cell phones handing out the mobile devices to people who have promised to sell them for drug money, to buy shoes and handbags, to pay off their bills, or just for extra spending cash.

I know, I know, but do you have any idea what it’s like to be poor and black and popular? Ya gotta have a phone, knowwhatimsayin, mofo?

The ‘Obama phone,’ which made its ignominious YouTube debut outside a Cleveland, Ohio presidential campaign event last September, is a project of the Federal Communications Commission’s ‘Lifeline’ program, which makes land line and mobile phones available to Americans who meet low-income requirements.

You remember Obama Phone Lady, right? We were all treated to her in-your-face-sucka Obama rant outside a Cleveland Romney event during the 2012 campaign.

Lifeline was a $2.19 billion program in 2012.

Recipients most commonly demonstrate their need by flashing an Electronic Benefits Transfer card to verify their eligibility for welfare payments, or by bringing tax statements to a phone provider.

The phones’ legitimate purposes include poverty-level job applicants’ use as contact numbers for job interviews and emergency contacts for children of single parents.

But when James O’Keefe, whose Project Veritas is a perennial thorn in the side of progressive policymakers, sent an undercover actor into a Stand Up Wireless location in Philadelphia, the man’s stated purpose was to buy drugs. [Read More]

Of course Obama’s purpose is not to give phones away to low-income people so they will sell them to buy drugs. It is to funnel taxpayer money to Mexican billionaire buddies whose purpose it is to give phones away to low-income people so they will sell them to buy drugs. There’s your built-in $1.5 billion return-buyers market, right there.

Then there’s the additional government upside: Obama’s NSA doesn’t have to look up so many telephone numbers.
