I distinctly remember that “Level Playing Field” blather from Obama.
All the blacks & Liberals heard:
I get a new car!
I get free gas!
I get a better place to live on Section 8
I get free groceries!
Obama WILL NOT raise the level of those on the bottom portion.
Obama will tear down those at the top portion.
I was right.
Altho-—Obama did give out millions of Obamaphones——which need to be reviewed. I know people who have them who should NOT qualify as such.
This is, indeed, a program that needs to be revaluated and possibly cut way back or even ended.
I am in intake interviewer at a local non-profit food bank. I talk with folks all the time who have 'obamaphones.' There is supposed to be a limit of one phone per family.
Last week I interviewed a single mother (most are) and her three teenager kids. When I asked about the phone bill amount (it had been left blank on the info sheet) one of the kids volunteered that each of them had a phone. That's four phones (which you and I are paying for*) when there should have been only one (which you and I are paying for*). This abuse must be stopped.
The rest of the story: the mother also has three other younger kids who were on the info sheet but not present. I asked about them and the mother said a neighbor was babysitting the youngsters. I asked if they had phones also. The Mom said, "No, they're too young to use a phone. But when they get a little older..."
