    From a comment in another diary:

    Did you know that the program you refer to is funded by
    telecom companies, not by taxes? The free cell phone program started under President George Bush, with grants from an independent company created under President Bill Clinton. Those are facts.

    As a 30-year telecom industry professional, I was a consultant for the FCC from 1982-1986. The Lifeline program originated in 1984, during the administration of Ronald Reagan; it was expanded in 1996, during the administration of Bill Clinton; and its first cellular provider service (SafeLink Wireless) was launched by TracFone in 2008, during the administration of George W. Bush.
