    In the 1900s NOT EVEN THE PRESIDENT of the USA, NOR the richest people or MOST powerful kings EVER HAD what the "Rich Poor" have now!

    FREE instant communications with each other FREE CELL PHONES!
    In 2008, the fund that foots the bill for this program contributed $819 million to subsidize low-income telephone services.
    The fund is projected to grow to over $1 billion this year.
    That’s $1 billion of over $800 billion the United States will spend on welfare in 2010. Welfare recipients now eligible to receive cell phones
    Welfare recipients now eligible to receive cell phones
    a) Free Cell phone (my cell phone I PAY is about $100/month)
    if the poor person receives just one of the below:
    Food stamps * Medicaid * Section 8 * Supplemental Security Income * National School Lunch Program
    NO KING or PRESIDENT EVER GOT FREE FOOD!!!
    b) 40 million Americans on food stamps get $200/month in free food.

    FREE HOUSING for KINGS??? NO THEY HAD to FIGHT for the RIGHT!!
    c) about 2.1 million households (6 million) use Section 8 the Housing Choice Voucher program, pays a large
    portion of the rents and utilities of or the Housing Choice Voucher Program up to $1,000 /month in FREE housing...

    FREE MONEY FROM the Government??
    Unheard of EVEN KINGS and monarchs and dictators had to FIGHT each day to keep the coffers coming!!!
    BUT THE "RICH POOR in the USA??
    1) Don't work. 2) have kids..
    === $ 5,666 in EIC cash, instead of paying in THEY GET!!!

    === $12,000 free housing ,
    === $ 2,400 free food,
    === $ 1,200 in free cell phone plus
    === $ 5,000 a year in free health care from Medicaid.
    === unknown free transportation expenses...

    ADD IT ALL UP
    $26,000 a year in FREE MONEY, free goods and free services...


    NOW tell me a KING or a President in the 1900s that could say they had all of that???
    FREE communications.. free food... free shelter AND FREE MONEY!!!

    WHERE DO I SIGN UP??
    AS more and more people like me are seeing for example MY CELL PHONE $3.00 per month going to provide FREE cell phone!

    And yet not one of you would trade places with someone who's poor and trying to seek a job to raise their family.

    My granddaughter wouldn't trade places with one of those stupid people who work that's for sure. With all her bennies, she's raking in almost $5,000 a month.

    So, we have a safety net for those who have lost their incomes for whatever reason. And you would just throw them out on the street? You prefer Dickesonian England for an example of what society should be, I take it.

    And the families that are out on the street? Homelessness is increasingly a family affair. How has that happened with all these free 'bennies'?

    The number of families out on the street is miniscule and unless actively sought as a circumstance temporary. I have personally known many families out on the street. They were members of an ethnic group allergic to caring for themselves, on drugs or both.

    Unlike any of the other wars we've fought since WWII, the War on Poverty has been a huge sucess.

    Anyone who is envious of the poor should seek to become one of them forthwith.
