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.

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


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."
