The free government cell phone program is helping millions of low income Americans. But unlike those worthy millions, there are thousands of scam artists who bring shame to the program. Like the woman in this video, for example, who is wasting money that could be used to supply cell phones for Americans who really deserve them.
As if that weren’t bad enough, she mistakenly refers to her free government cell phones as an “Obama Phones” As we’ve discussed in great depth, that an inaccurate name. They could just as easily be called Clinton Phones or Bush Phones. See our write-up on the Obama Phone.
It’s a shame that this no-viral video was prominently featured on the Drudge Report this morning and hundreds of other sites today that are not understanding of the Lifeline free government cell phone program and how it helps millions of needy Americans. Detractors are now going to use it to try and defund the program. In fact, our site’s traffic is up 10-fold today already, as people searching for Obama Phone land on our pages.
We hope you’ll help us defend this valuable program. If you know someone who has a free government cell phone, but doesn’t qualify for it, please report them. Or, if you know someone who has multiple free government cell phones, please report them.
Keep the free government cell phone program strong and honest. Report scammers.
