Re: US Phone Program Cost 2.2Billion
My bitch isn't that people who don't have phones need one, those that needed one got one. I can buy into that to some extent. It should be the cheapest phone available, no smart or premium phones allowed, and it should be the cheapest plan available, bulk discounting should be applied (and probably is).
My bitch is that, once again, a government managed program, as well intentioned as it is, was miss-managed, went over budget, and those who are not entitled got benefits, and wasted tax payer monies. Seems so much so a recurring story with government managed programs.
If a man were behind four months on his mortgage and was talking to you about his plans to build an addition on his home you would think him daft and delusional. But in Washington, ignoring a current crisis to discuss grand dreams is called “boldness” and “vision.”
