Cellphones were added to welfare programs in the mid 80s? Wow they must have been upwardly mobile back then.

And it actually is necessary to have any hope of GETTING a job.

I'm glad he switched to half EBT half food box. Great fucking idea. And im ok with other welfare changes as well.

But the phone shits pretty fucking obvious. Good luck getting a job without having a phone.

I agree, but I prefer limitations - Give someone a basic flip phone with call and text features only. Want something nicer? Fucking work for it.

The main reason they gave the phones away is to track people. Having the tracking device operate as a cell phone just makes it more probable that the intended target for tracking will actually be carrying the device

The real reason is Gobongo/Cronies got a huge kickback from the cell providers. Here's how it works: Obama uses tax dollars to pay $60/month per user (that's just a random number I used). In turn that cell provider donates $250k/year (another random number) to Obama charities.

a clamshell cellphone is neccesary for survival in our society especially for those younger. Its once of the few programs that provides something tangible. IE opportunities. I dont use cellphones Cause im a insane conspiracy theorist that don;t trust technology.

Nah. There is nothing so important in a nog’s life that he needs any technology more advanced than a spear for chucking.

Allowing niggers to record themselves displaying TNB is a great tool for deprogramming white people in their conditioning that all people are the same and this saves lives. When all we are exposed to in media are lies of magical negros that behave like humans. I enjoy pointing out all the tumble-weave in shegro chimpouts, after all, they have wool instead of hair.

I'm disabled and the lifeline program is literally a life line for me.

It allows me to call for the rides to doctors appointments, and to call the rides back home, along with every other reason a person needs a phone in the modern world.

I only get 350 min a month and a small amount of data. It is a tool not a luxury like some idiots imagine.

I hate niggers as much as the next guy, but find that a cell phone is pretty much a necessity now a days. Good luck finding a job without a phone and Internet connection.

Public libraries have computers with internet. Spend 2-4 hours a day at the library filling out applications.

Its unlimited texting, not unlimited data.

What better way to track these people than give them free phones which are monitored? Now all citizens can be tracked...even the poor ones.

Think bigger picture.

Typically, it's unlimited texting, a certain number of minutes per month, and no data unless you pay extra.
