Here are the "entitlement","Santa Claus",free stuff benefits to the "poor".. 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. Thats $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 FREE entitlements: * Food stamps * Medicaid * Section 8 * Supplemental Security Income * National School Lunch Program b) 40 million Americans on food stamps get $200/month in free food. it cost $75.7 billion in 2011 compared to $35 billion in 2008; and enrollment has hit an all-time high of 46.7 million recipients. Meanwhile, the number of children receiving free school lunches has inflated from 18 to 21 million an unprecedented jump about 2.1 million households (6 million) use Section 8 the Housing Choice Voucher program, pays a large c) portion of the rents and utilities of or the Housing Choice Voucher Program up to $1,000 /month in FREE housing... So these people get === $ 5,666 in EIC cash, === $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. So this is about $26,000 a year in FREE MONEY, free goods and free services... For all of you that think this is a GOOD positive direction to go for society my question is.. Should this stop and if not how far should it go? Should ALL Americans get "FREE" stuff and if so WHO will pay for it?
