He also has, a 72 inch tv, a Wii, an Xbox, a DVD player, a desktop and laptop. The live in a fantastic suburb of Cleveland. The wife doesn’t work and the kids get free breakfast and lunch.
What makes you think your standard of living will drop?
I used to be more angry about this a couple of months ago until I researched it further. They get 10 minutes a month and then have to pay for additional minute blocks. I think this is a clever way to get more cell phone customers. The phones suck also - you could buy one for less than $20 bucks and start adding Tracphone minutes yourself.
When they all get brain cancer who will they blame?
When you rob Peter to pay Paul you are guarenteed to get Paul’s vote.
He is buying votes with our money. What’s next? Giving ACORN guns at the polling stations? Why not, baseball bats are already OK acording to Holder.
Here in Florida it is 68 minutes per month. When I got upset over the amount of money I was paying for cell phone service for me and two kids I went shopping for new service. The kids now have Net-10 service. The phones are very similar to the safelink ones and cost $30 which includes 4 months service and 600 minutes or $7.50 per month with 150 minutes each month. If (ha-ha)the government shopped carefully then the phone and the 68 minutes should cost $3.40 per month. Maybe one in ten will get a job because they now have a phone. This is all paid for by those universal access taxes that they put on your cell and landline bill. There is also a program for cheap landline phone service.
