Blame them both.
Bush for pushing this Progressive Crap pile.
0bama for continuing the raping of the tax payer, to provide crap for non-producers in society.
YEAH, MORE CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bend over all you tax paying Citizens. Might as well just hand over half your paycheck now, so in 2 years it won't be sticker shock.

THIS PRESIDENT IS THE WORST.
Just so you know, this program first began in August 2008, 2 months before Obama was ever elected. So if you're going to blame any president for it, blame Bush.
Not that I support Obama mind you. I think every federal politician elected since 2000 should be brought up on charges of one form or another.

It is interesting how this will go on and on bashing Obama for helping poor people and posters will wilfully ignore the fact that OBAMAPHONE WAS DEVISED AND IMPLEMENTED BY BUSH but hey who needs facts when your are all about denying ignorance.

Its so they can track people, they want everyone on the control grid, although their excuse is so people can call 911. it also gives people the false sense that a phone is a right to further dumb down the masses. No fourth amendment in america but you get a free cancer phone.
One guy I know uses it exclusively to sell drugs.
Cell phones are not a neccesity!!!

I don't see where this a vital "need" for anyone if they can't afford it. Too bad, you don't get a phone. Medicaid, foodstamps, even rent assistance I can see a true need for but who is going to die if they don't have a phone?
From our experience with our friend, he couldn't afford his cable, internet, phone combo anymore, had no extra money to get a cell phone and had no phone. If you don't have a phone......seriously you could die if you can't get an emergency phone call in. Our fried lives alone, this program really does help him.
Like I said , I'm sure it gets abused by quite a few people, but for the very needy, it's a useful program.
Well then maybe your friend should cancel his cable and then he would be able to afford a phone. Cable/Internet/Phone are luxuries not necessities.
