Obamaphones in Ohio?

What's this I'm hearing about free Obamaphones being given out in Ohio. Isn't vote buying illegal?

Nothing is illegal to this administration. The way they see it, they're in charge ... everyone else can go to hell. :mad:

The phones are nothing new, I know they have been running ads in the local paper for a few years now.

MA has been handing phones out to welfare recipients for years. It's a democrat thing I guess.

If you don't work, just pop out a few kids - they'll pay your rent, car payment ( so you can drive a brand new car! ), heat (and if your heating system isn't up to snuff, they'll replace it ... AND GUT YOUR HOUSE to re-insulate!!), food, and health care.

Is it any wonder the nation is broke? :roll:

In Ohio the usage of these free Obamaphones is now at 1 million (per the Drudge Report). There are only 11.5 million people living in the state, and that is counting children plus adults. Is the service itself also free?

Apparently it's FCC program started in 1985, that USF charge on your phone bill. :mad:

Like I said I started noticing ads in the paper for it a few years ago. They weren't government sponsored ads but ads from those providing the phone. I'll see if I can find one because I know I just saw one the other day.

Lifeline took off in the last decade, as prepaid cell phones became popular. In 2008 there were 7.1 million accounts nationwide. Today there are 12.5 million, about half of which are mobiles sold by Miami-based TracFone (AMX), Sprint (S), and hundreds of small regional companies. The government pays the carriers up to $10 a month for each Lifeline subscriber. Customers get free phones and 250 minutes of monthly airtime. It’s a good deal for them and a potential moneymaker for the mobile-phone providers, who can sell extra minutes once customers max out on their free ones. Both TracFone, which had 3.8 million Lifeline subscribers as of late last year, and Sprint, which declines to release figures, say revenue from selling consumers additional minutes is low.
