The fact that the “Obama phone” program is rife with fraud is not exactly a surprise, at least not to our readers here. We noted it here last February, citing the Wall Street Journal report, stating that 41% of beneficiaries of this program may be ineligible, and here last March.
Now the intrepid James “Caught on tape” O’Keefe of Project Veritas has gotten more evidence of what a hideous “social welfare” rathole this program has become. Watch this video in which his undercover investigators tell the workers handing out these phones that they plan to sell them and use the cash, which comes from charges to your cell phone bill, Bitter Clinger, for shoes, bags and even heroin. My favorite is the woman who whines about all her “f**cking bills,” and says “thank God for Obama because Obama is basically paying for my Louis Vuitton bag right now.”
In addition, this fraud not only benefits Obama mascot groups, it has the additional benefit of shoveling cash into the pockets of the very rich, in fact, one of the richest men in the world, Mexican telecom billionaire Carlos Slim Helu, whose TracFone company received up to $440 million in Lifeline payments just last year.
The only one not benefitting are the saps who are paying for this scam, as in us.
Remember, when Barack Obama promised to “remake” America, he meant what he said. Left unspoken was what that “remake” would look like. Let me spell it out again. It is Cook County writ large, a pyramid with the political royalty like Barack, Moochelle, Valerie and the rest of the inner circle living at a level of luxury unheard of in human history at the very top, largely on the taxpayers’ dime, their cronies and identity politics mascot groups in the center, keeping them in power by voting the right way and mobilizing their members in exchange for the favors and cash they receive, and at the very bottom, you guessed it, the serfs, who role in the scheme is to keep working as many jobs and as many hours as necessary to pay for the whole thing.
Welcome to Barack Obama’s America. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
