There has been a lot of flack with this program that it is a "Obama” program to socialize America. I just wanted give some facts on it. http://www.factcheck.org/2009/10/the-obama-phone/

I love how some people refer to the Safelink program as "an Obama phone."

WTF?

The program's been in effect for 25 years and finally recognizes the reality of cell phones as a viable option for communication.

And the phones themselves are cheap, low-end devices, but the right wing echo chamber rails against this because of the perception that cell phones are somehow "luxuries."

Crazy.
