Then you'll be happy to know that you already have your wish! There is no such thing as an "Obama phone" - and, in fact, it would more properly be
termed as a Reagan phone!
1) No tax dollars go towards paying for it.
2) No government program administers it.
3) It is actually wildly profitable for most wireless carriers as the phones they offer are low end, outdated, refurbished phones and many recipients
of these phones pay to upgrade and/or add minutes each month- at their own cost.
4)Applicants have to apply and prove that they are either receiving certain types of government benefits, such as Medicaid, or have household incomes
at or below 135 percent of the poverty line.
It's a con. Rich companies making money hand over fist and managing to look like the victims. This is probably why Governor Romney has never,
himself, brought this up during debate or in interview.
I point these things out because voting matters, so accurate information is important.
