Obamaphone Program Still equals Waste, Fraud and Abuse

from One News Now:

Former President Barack Obama’s controversial “Obamaphone” program – which is still having taxpayers foot the bill for cellphones for the poor – has been exposed as being riddled with fraud, as reports indicate that more than one out of three enrollees were not qualified to receive “free” phones … phones they could afford.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) released the report on Thursday shedding new light on Obama’s free cellphone program to the poor – officially called the “Lifeline Program” — which is raising more concern about the giveaway that has become a symbol of the former administration’s frivolous government waste. read more

What is the refrain of the left whenever anyone suggests tax cuts? Naturally it is, “How are you going to pay for them?”

And what about cutting government spending? Well, Democrats will cry, in unison, that there is no where to cut. By cutting spending, we will be ripping food out of the mouths of needy children, or some such nonsense.

Yesterday I wrote an article regarding gun violence in Dodge City…er… Chicago. You may review it here.

In it I revealed that Obama cheerleader, Mayor Rahm Emanuel is receiving a $10 million federal grant to help “at risk” children.

You can bet the farm that at least half, if not most of that cash won’t make it whom it’s slated. It will go to line the pockets of the mayor’s cronies.

Naturally, there will be no “real” oversight of the monies final destination. And of course – no one will ask.

On the same day we hear that Secretary of State John “Lurch” Kerry announced our government is giving the terrorist gang Hamas $47 million in “Humanitarian” aid.
