Free cell phones to poor people?!!?

The state of Florida has a government funded program that allows people to get a free cell phone with like 60 - 80 minutes a month of talk time pre-paid!!! People who are on welfare, food stamps, etc qualify for this.

do you think this is a luxury that people can do without taxpayers footing the bill?

  • i honestly don't know, probably not.
    however, having a phone, like internet, has become so common it is necessary to apply for a job and such. i don't mind having about an hour or so available of prepaid talk time, we all rely on our technology so much its kinda hard to keep up w/ day to day living w/out it.
    i just hope all the people that need the leg up will stay up and make it worthwhile to their local economy for the debt we all got signed on for. yea for wishful thinking....

  • That is crazy! A cell phone is not a need. You know what is really going on is businesses making deals with the government. The govertment is making money with our money! That is what i'm mad about. And the people who benifit don't care because well they're getting something for nothing. We really need to start writing these people and getting angry.
