Yup, here it is. People who “qualify” will get free cell phones AND free minutes and all us tax payers get to pay for it…… Gee, just doesn’t sound right to me. Where does it say everyone has a right to a phone, let alone a cell phone. I thought that if you wanted to have those types things, you had to pay for them. So I guess this Dem Congress and this Socialist/Marxist President thinks that you and me must pay for those services for those who cannot (or will not) pay for it. Here are the qualifications required:
The process to qualify for Lifeline Service depends on the State you live in. In general, you may qualify if…
You already participate in other State or Federal assistance program such as Federal Public Housing Assistance, Food Stamps and Medicaid.
Your total household income is at or below of the poverty guidelines set by your State and/or the Federal Government.
No one in your household currently receives Lifeline Service through another phone carrier.
You have a valid United States Postal Address. In order for us to ship you your free phone you must live at a residence that can receive mail from the US Post Office. Sorry, but P.O. Boxes cannot be accepted.
In addition to meeting the guidelines above you will also be required to provide proof of your participation in an assistance program, or proof of your income level.
