Just one winning thing after another. How many Billions will this save?
He is making people starve!!!!!

I don’t really know...........but women, children and minorities are hardest hit..............
The Obamaphone program is costing billions, and will steadily increase...........
yep. “Trump Starves Millions. Film at 11”.
I guess they’ll say it’s due to Obama’s 8 years in office that we are now seeing this reduction.
They will take credit for anything that happens in the next 4 years..................
Yes, but its most of the “Gibsmedats” that think they have the God given right to live off the rest of the American people.
Let Trump keep building the economy and obamaphone usage will drop naturally. At $10 a month it's a cheap benefit for poor people.
Go after fraud but don't cancel the program.
The fraud is rampant.
Kill it, then redesign it from scratch...................
Redesigning it just opens you to more fraud.
Figure out where the fraud is and go after it.
But again, it’s small potatoes.
If someone has 4 phones, and doesn’t really qualify for any, they’re costing us $480/year.
Improve the controls, but Food stamps, medicaid, SS Disability, tax credit fraud are all much bigger targets.
A phone costs $10 a month. Food stamps average household benefit is $253.
Certainly improve the controls, but the phones are nothing.
Multiply that times a million then it's $480 million.
Times 10 million its 4.8 BILLION.
Now that they know how the fraud is accomplished, it should be fairly easy to negate it, via law and severe punishment.
I would bet that it’s a huge portion.....................
I remember during a Nixon-Kennedy debate where Kennedy bemoaned that "a lot of Americans go to bed hungry". Nixon replied "That's because they are on a diet."
Brought the house down.
