A friend told me about this. The government is giving Free Cell phones to Welfare Recipients and they are getting 70 free minutes of air time a month.
I did my research on this. I thought there is no way that this could be true, but it is SafeLink Wireless is the provider.
Did I miss something? Why are we catering to a group of people that don't want to work? I understand the ones that cannot but there are so many that could work, but choose to play the system that they now get money and food and now free cell phones. What's next Laptops, TVs, cable television, vacations, A new car?
I have a friend in Indiana that works for FSSA - Family Social Service Administration, and she has told me in the past that people has been in her office stoned off their asses applying for Government Assistant. She said that they are the type that are working the system in their favor, where the ones that really needs it are getting left in the dark.
I am sure some of you know that I was born handicapped, I have had reconstruction surgery on both of my feet. Just so that I could walk like everyone else. I have standards, I want to work, but why do I want to anymore? My taxes are paying for some person to sit back and collect a check, get free rent, free transportation, and now a free cell phone with free minutes.
Maybe I am over reacting, but I don't think I am. Its like the companies that are making you take a drug test so that you can sell shoes in their store. What is up with that? I don't see welfare people taking drug test in order to get all these free things. I don't see them making an effort to find a job and stop this madness.
I honestly think that "We the people" have lost our ways. The Welfare program was set up for those in need. But do these people need a cell phone with minutes?
