    Just more welfare phone abuse

    But this time it's by one of the vendors themselves it seems.

    The companies providing your Free Cell Phone service are paid 10 dollars per month to cover the cost of 250 Cell phone minutes through the Lifeline Assistance program supported by the Universal Service Fund. The Universal Service Fund is a government slush fund financed by the monthly Cell phone surcharges (taxes) paid by the people who pay – through the nose – for their Cell Phone service.

    Good news, ReachOut Wireless (Nexus/Google) is now in the game. They, and other minor players account for 8 million Welfare phones in circulation in 39, soon to be all 50 states. At ten dollars per user per month, that works out to 80 million dollars per month taken from the pockets of paying Cell Phone customers and transferred to the pockets of giant multinational telecommunications giants

    I see some justification for the program, particularly since pay phones are history, but there seems to be a lot of abuse.

    I'm dead set against this fraudulent riddled welfare handout.

    Instead, allow those that legitimately qualify pay the 10 or 12 dollars a month themselves.
