I want one! Can you believe I saw a republineocon on TV talking about how we have to cut this program because its a waste. I think the "free" cellphone program only costs 2-3 billion a year, I do believe its excessive and could be done cheaper. But this compared to what we spend on needless military and wars? This is nothing. My dad has a free cellphone and he has heart problems. So he keeps it incase he has to call the hospital. But he also makes personal calls, but hardly ever. He uses the house phone.
Do I think this should be cut to spend more on military? The empire? Israel? Foreign Aid? Hell no. Cut that stuff first. But I know how the neocons think. This free cellphone program that costs 2-3 billion a year is breaking the bank, it couldn't possibly be the 100 billion a year we spend on useless military and the empire.
