The government cell phone program helps them survive, climb out of poverty and live with dignity. That’s why it’s so important for the Obama administration to expand it beyond its current restrictive limits.
Lake Forest, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2013
The Lifeline Assistance government cell phone program ("Obama Phone") is under attack. Instead of letting the program be killed, FreeGovernmentCellPhones.net urges President Obama to expand the program to include more low income, needy Americans.
“60 million American households now live below the median income level,” Mark Henry, Editor of the site said. “This program helps them survive, climb out of poverty and live with dignity. That’s why it’s so important for the Obama administration to expand it beyond its current restrictive limits.”
The WhiteHouse.gov petition states:
The Obama administration should:
Expand the "Free Government Cell Phone" program.
The Lifeline Assistance program gives no-cost government cell phones with 250 minutes per month to more than 10 million low-income Americans. Conservative politicians and talk show hosts like Rush Limbaugh want to destroy this outstanding program. [FreeGovernmentCellPhones.net] supports this program because it (1) stimulates the economy by helping people get in touch with potential employers, (2) improves medical care by helping Americans reach medical providers, (3) improves quality of life by keeping families in contact, (4) keeps people safer by allowing people to make emergency phone calls. The Obama administration should protect and expand this program in order to achieve economic fairness and social justice for 60 million households below the median income.
“President Obama has promised to address any petitions that receive 100,000 or more signatures,” Henry added. “We urge you sign the petition and tell your friends about it, too.”
