The U.S. government spent about $2.2 billion last year to provide phones to low-income Americans, but a Wall Street Journal review of the program shows that a large number of those who received the phones haven't proved they are eligible to receive them.

“Millions for defense not one penny for tribute!” Thomas Jefferson circa 1804
“Billions for obama phones not one penny for defense!”
democrats circa 2013
and what I hear they can have up to 9 of these phones....
and they are just following their lieing A$$ mentor who ignores a 3 judge panel that says he violated the constitution on recess appointments.
Now the Liar in Chief is buying off more voters by using our tax money paying off the moochers that cannot pay off their student loans. Stinking moochers.
These low life moochers have no class just like the occupants of the White Hut that violate laws every day of the week. Ghetto trash scum that need to be removed by force, tried, convicted and hung by a hemp rope.

the real crime is that it is WSJ uncovering the problem not house republicans!! Did anyone think after seeing all the TV ads for free phones that this is not a scam on the gov????
I really don’t think the GOPe cares
Over $2.2 bllion dollars giving away cellphones... and this is okay with the GOP? I haven’t heard them criticize this program at all, do they ever mention it?
Laqueesha pops out another fatherless child and gets another Obama handout. She wakes up around noon and gets in her new Chevy Tahoe and goes to buy TBone steaks for dinner. Meanwhile I am standing in line at the grocery store behind her and her fully laden buggy full of steaks and ice cream and debbie cakes. I have a can of beans because I have no money left after PAYING for mine AND her phone and PAYING to feed her welfare babies.
Poor helpless Lequeesha and her 7 welfare babies. They play the system like a flute.
I’ve seen these phones pitched on TV with a mom (white) saying now she can keep in touch with her kids. The children in the commercial are young, implying they’re living with her, implying multiple obamaphones in the family. So wrong.
"Everybody in Cleveland, all minorities, got Obama phone. Keep Obama in president, you know? He gave us a phone! You sign up. If youre If you on food stamps, you on Social Security, you got low income, you disability
My little sister is a govt. employee / hardcore lefty and was a volunteer giving these things away last summer, we haven’t talked much since.
Any stats on how many were 0bama supporters and dims?
No, but the *cost* has increased $1.4B (up to $2.2B from .8B) since 2008. And lucky us get to pay for it in our cell/land line bills.
Shocked face in 3... 2... 1...
Johnny Fever WAS right, at least back then, there WERE phone cops.
I know. I met them.
Never hear a thing do you? Every night when I watch tv you see the commercials, are you on food stamps, ssi disability, adc? You may qualify for a free cell phone with text.... I have to pay for my cell phone why do we have to give free phone service to those on the dole? Hey boner here’s a cut we can implement! You know instead of eliminating an aircraft carrier !
And yet Liberals continue to deny that there even IS such a thing as the Obamaphone program.
Make even the mere mention of it to a Lib and they go bat-shiite crazy denouncing you and calling you a liar.
Johnny: (after hearing the sirens) It’s the phone cops. They know what I did here today.
Venus: What are you talking about?
Johnny: They’re coming to get me, man!
Venus: That’s paranoia, man!
Johnny: Wake up, sucker, this is the phone company we’re talking about! They see everything, they know everything, they got their own covert police force! I’m probably wired for sound right now! I gotta get out of here!
Johnny: Don’t use my name!!
I JUST heard Herman Cain (WSB radio 750-taking over for Neal Boortz) at 11:50 a.m. say that he had NOT HEARD about the “Obama-phones”!!!!! (this is sad, sad, sad.)
This reminded me immediately of Chris Wallace of Fox News saying he didn’t know who Nostradamus was!!
I’m convinced reading FreeRepublic should be a REQUIREMENT for everyone!
