There is no such thing as an "Obamaphone" The program was conceived by Ronald Reagan and implemented under George W. Bush. http://www.factcheck.org/2009/10/the-obama-phone/ Can't you get anything right?

The real question is Stevie, why do you seemingly enjoy being wrong so often? http://obamaphone.net/ Tell her they do not exist. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpAOwJvTOio And your link is irrelevant since I have not made any claims about when or who started the free cell phone program. I do know that the program has exploded since 2009. " In 2008 the program cost $772 million, but by 2011 it cost $1.6 billion." http://times247.com/articles/the-origin-of-obama-phones "the FCC acknowledges that the costs of the program have ballooned in recent years. By 2011, Lifeline was costing phone subscribers $1.75 billion per year." http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/FCC-12-11A2.pdf Now if you were not so fast to make yourself look like a fool you amy not look like a fool.

Thanks be to God that they are now on foot patrol on waverly streets instead of sitting in their cars probably doing whatever. We need them to go a block off greenmount in waverly else they will just get away with stuff. at least they are within a scream now. Most of it is going on on Old York...but we aren't the business owners...so screw us *L*
