    Why do they stop here? How about tuxedos or handbags?

    TracFone is a business of selling phones. What did you expect?

    My mistake, I thought that you lefties speak English, and could put two and two together. I'll try to speak slowly and use small words: the gov-ern-ment is now paying for cell phone ser-vice. The sound you hear is our Founding Fathers spinning in their graves.

    Is there no point at which you NEOCOMS will throw up your hands and say 'enough,' or in your case 'e-nuff', or, if you will allow me to mix metaphors, move back from the trough? Have you NO self-respect?

    How many senators do you suppose had to be paid off by SafeLink in order to get federal funding for the right to have a cell phone?

    The right to have a cell phone?! Holy crap, what is next, the right to have a big screen TV? A new Lexus? How about the right of everyone to have an ipod?

    sounds to me like the fed is paying for initial purchase of the tracfhone or the phone, and the people are paying their own minutes used....

    you can get the phones and plan with minutes for about 25 bucks at sams club....

    i don't know if the us gvt is going directly to tracfone and skipping the middle men costs or not, so it could be only a 10 buck investment for the gvt...

    setting all that aside, i don't have a cell phone....it isn't a must have imo!!!!!

    i seriously doubt obama put in this program this month, to head off you blaming him!!! ;)

    care

    My greatest fear is that nobody had to be paid off: this is how they actually feel!

    Did you notice who owns the WH and the Congress?

    Is this what America voted for (excuse sentence ending with a preposition)?

    SAFELINK WIRELESS® service is U.S. government supported program for Income eligible households provided by TracFone Wireless, Inc. In order to participate in the SAFELINK WIRELESS® service, persons must meet certain eligibility requirements set by each State where the service is to be provided. These requirements are based on a person’s participation in a state or Federal support programs or by meeting the Income Poverty Guidelines as defined by the U.S. Government. SAFELINK WIRELESS® service is limited to one person per household.

    Its utterly fantastic that a liberal will automatically support a program if they think a Conservative doesn't support it....no matter what the program ...

    Our tax dollars paying a dime for anybodys cellphone or cellphone service is freekin W R O N G !

    This program was instituted around 2005 by the FCC and is partly funded by phone companys...that means paying customers....
    they mean well, but its not a right to have cellphone service....
