Letter: Wake up!

Why does the federal government spend $2.2 billion on free cell phones for poor people and then furlough air traffic controllers? We definitely have a problem in Washington, and it’s time the American people wake up.

The program was originally started for folks who live in rural areas. And like most govt programs, it expanded, was not policed and is abused to the max. You wonder how many folks are selling these phones like they do food stamps. What is next on the agenda, free cars?

Check your non-government sponsored cell-phone bill. It's not necessarily the government paying for it. Its us bill-payers. We pay for 911 service, we pay a for "universal service" (which pays for these freebies), I pay a 23% fee to AT&T to cover their obligations for government mandated costs... it's crazy.

President Barack Obama has spent more time on vacations and golf outings during his presidency than he has spent in meetings on the economy, according to a report released Sunday. The Government Accountability Institute (GAI) combed official records to produce a report on how the president has allocated his time.......and it shows

And where did you complain about Bush Jr. who took more vacations than any other sitting president? Oh.. that's ok he's a Republican! And by the way, how does your comment relate to the letter? It doesn't!

President George W. Bush has spent more time on vacations and golf outings during his presidency than he has spent in meetings on the economy, according to a report released Sunday. They recently opened a Library in Texas in honor of the former president and its filled with coloring books, clay, legos, etc....

refer to the GWTW link and you will learn things

Since February 2009, the first full month of Obama’s presidency, 9,549,000 people have left the labor force. There were 80,387,000 Americans not working that month, compared with 89,936,000 not working or looking today, according to the latest economic release from BLS.......that is 100% the Obama Economy

I just read the report. Obama actually spent double the time golfing and vacationing as he did in meeting on the economy...and the GAI was being VERY generous. Read it here: http://g-a-i.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/GAI-Presidential-Calendar-Report.pdf
