Though “the Obama Phone” has been around for a while, today it has just gotten viral-attention as a pre-election talking point.

“The Obama Phone” is a free phone from yet another President Barack Obama government program that gives to the financially-needy via the United States taxpayers’ money. The program alleges that communication should not only be for those people who can afford it.

Prior to Obama’s becoming-publicized free phone, there has been another program in the past – The Lifeline Program – which gave financial assistance for low-income families to afford land lines. According to persons who have engaged in the newer Obama cell phone program, the newer program actually gives them a cell phone with an allotted number of minutes per month.

 

Executive Summary (Scribd.com) News that the poverty rate has risen to 15.1 percent of Americans, the highest level in nearly a decade, has set off a predictable round of calls for increased government spending on social welfare programs. Yet this year the federal government will spend more than $668 billion on at least 126 different programs to fight poverty. And that does not even begin to count welfare spending by state and local governments, which adds $284 billion to that figure. In total, the United States spends nearly $1 trillion every year to fight poverty. That amounts to $20,610 for every poor person in America, or $61,830 perpoor family of three.  

Since President Obama took office, federal welfare spending has increased by 41 percent, more than $193 billion per year.(Nearly $500 billion total in welfare this year.) Despite this government largess, more than 46 million Americans continue to live in poverty. Despite nearly $15 trillion in total welfare spending since Lyndon Johnson declared war on poverty in 1964, the poverty rate is perilously close to where we began more than 40 years ago.

Clearly we are doing something wrong. Throwing money at the problem has neither reduced poverty nor made the poor self sufficient. It is time to reevaluate our approach to fighting poverty. We should focus less on making poverty more comfortable and more on creating the prosperity that will get people out of poverty.
