I think most conservatives on this board get their information from Fox News and email forwards, which are one in the same.
I know that you can't go further into your explanation and give specifics without proving me correct so I figured that you would be as vague as possible to make sure you didn't post why/how it relates to Obama. Petty or not, the reasons that I gave are why they are called Obamaphones.
Problem under Obama, pick the start of the response
Reagan was the first to.......
George HW Bush..........
Boehner is the one............
Obama is responsible for absolutely nothing wrong that occurs in the 8 years he is in office.
Not sure what you are asking, I didn't see anything in that article that compares 2009 to 2012 other than the huge balloon in the number of recipients up to 2012.
Lmao. You are dense.
It didn't prove anything wrong that we were discussing. Most of the false claims were that it was a tax, not a fee passed on to consumers, even though the costs passed on are to avoid eating the costs that cell phone companies have to pay the Government. If you want to argue that gov't fees aren't taxes (like in Obamacare) several will disagree with you.
Your argument was that Obama giving out free shit and a woman on a video bragging about it have nothing to do with why they are called Obama phones. Are you saying that the line at the bottom about using Obama's name to sell a product is why I am wrong?
You do know that Bush was the President that expanded the program to include cell phones, right? Yeah, you probably didn't.
No, my reason was that the program tripled since he took office and the fraud amount in 2012 was more than the entire program amount when he took over. The video was an example of a woman bragging about getting a free phone and that everyone should support Obama because erbody in Cleveland got them.
The guy that started the Obama phone bullshit has even admitted that he's full of shit.
An A-team of Florida Republicans packed a Tampa stage Wednesday to welcome Mitt Romney and rally supporters in the final days of the presidential campaign. Former Gov. Jeb Bush and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio were in the lineup, as well as Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, who warmed up the crowd and encouraged voters to head to the polls early. t just show up and cheer and slap a bumper sticker ...
Nobody was arguing about the program initiation or that Clinton and Bush both expanded it. The point is that is has tripled since 2008, with 41% not be qualified. Even the articles about people mad about it are saying it won't be scrapped, but rather it needs to be monitored and stop allowing so many people to get free phones that are paid for by people with jobs.
Um, he expanded it in 2008 and now you're blaming Obama for the program growing. After Bush expanded it. Pretty stupid.
Did you read the article I posted?
You posted earlier that it was made up by Republicans for petty partisanship gains but now you are saying that it was made up to sell more phones after the inauguration because you read a Snope's article. You flip flop as much as Obama.
Because cnn and msnbc are such beacons of light. People like you are the reason I vote independent.
You bad ass. I'm not a Republican or a Democrat, and never will be one ever again. Have fun being misinformed.
Lol @ the lib
Lol @ the meat curtain.
Go give every kid a trophy for losing nerd.

There is not ONE good reason for the obamaphone program other than to get voters on the teat

The program needs to end. If you can't afford one, you don't get one. Pretty simple
But how will the recipients be able to call their drug dealers?
Time for people to actually go to work for a change.
So you if you can't afford a house phone and you can't afford a cell phone, you should just be cut off from the world? That should really help.
If you can't afford a house phone you really should be cut off from the world. It's like six cents a month these days.
