  1. I am truly upset, for one, someone who makes NO EFFORT to work can get a free phone, let alone free text!!! Now I have a friend, who first never trys to work, does not qualify for disability, and now gets free internet and is playing on Facebook on average free govt phone!!! I worked all my life, had to come out on disability because if health issues. Barely make it on my check, yet I have to pay for my own food, phone and Dr bills! This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard of in my life!!!!!! You should all be ashamed of yourselves! Your helping lazy people just stay lazy!!!

    • Pam Carr, the Lifeline program helps many working and disabled people as well as low-income consumers who legitimately need help. I can not speak about your friends situation, however, because I do not know her.

    • Pamela Carr,

      What difference should it make to you? You are on disability and could be receiving the free cell phone and minutes if you filled out the forms and qualify. Some people you think are not really disabled may have something wrong with them that you can’t start to understand. Most of us DO need the help the government assistance program gives us. If you received it you wouldn’t be complaining, so why don’t you try to qualify? If you are drawing disability then I would think you qualify. If not, can’t you just be glad you get money and leave the rude remarks about us out because sometimes a disability is NOT recognizable to the eye. You mam are cruel to those of us that can’t help the way we are! We didn’t ask to be different or unable to do a lot of things normal people can do, but we’re haunted with that everyday and at no fault of our own! Grow up, get a life, quit downgrading others that do have mental or physical disabilities and work on yourself instead of criticizing others. You’d be a lot happier person!
