Another step in creating a Nanny State and make everyone dependent on the government to take care of them. It's getting close to the point where you're better off not working than you are working and that's when the working class revolts and the game comes crashing down on itself, it's coming sooner than later!
Here we go again another burden on the working people .. Take from those who work and give to those who don't.........
This is unbelievable! Free cell phones for those on assistance and the homeless? I bet free service is included.
I am going to find the bill and see which of our politicians thought that this was such a great idea during tough economical times.
Only in America!!! When will this madness stop!
Hasn't seen a homeless person yet without a cell phone, but maybe I am not seeing enough?..
In one case they have one, now they have another....
Well, now they can sell more dope or call their pusher on the govt's generosity.
Yep...Hey Bro! Got a dimebag? All from tax payer dollars.
Thats how the Dems bought the vote, more free entitlements.
Love it the state broke and more junk spending, when will it end.Whats next free computers and the internet, The Dem's could justify that by saying they need these tools to look for work, or the best sale on booze.
Are you sure this isn't the story that was supposed to appear under the headline "Another Scam Reported"?
This is so wrong. We never get to vote on this kind of free program because they know that we would not pass it. I've seen on certain TV shows where they interviewed some of these so called "homeless" people in other states and they had 8 or 9 free cell phones in their purses that were given to them by the gov't. Anything to keep buying votes for those in office. When will this nonsense stop? Not in my lifetime I'm sure. Geeezzz.
Ret Co Social wkr
Many transitional living programs already have addressed this issue for the homeless residents by providing a contact phone number for potential employers to contact the clients regarding potential job opportunities. These programs focus on education and work for a person to become self sufficient. Our government is creating a class of co-dependents so politicians can also beg for votes at the expense of the working middle class tax payers.
Five million free cell phones? Shouldn't we get a chance to vote on spending like this?
Come on Folks, get on board with the free stuff. Shame on you that work for a living to criticize such generosity. You people really have some NERVE!!! Yup, a good percentage of you reading this busted your well you know what to get what you have today. You had your backs to the wall and kept on charging and made a living. Well, now its the time of the Slackers,and the ludicrous official that are elected in office. What's crazy is at the National Parks and other Wildlife preserve they say dont feed the animals or they will become depend on handouts. I guess the bottm line is cheese is also free in a mouse trap, and look what that will get you. To the first six post on here shame on you for being SPOT ON!!! California is only a small example what the US Governmnet is doing.
Sign me up! Free phones?! So they can connect with family/potential employers....?! Why doesnt the state pay my bills? Oh wait, I work to pay for the homeless! My family must not need the money I EARN! crazy to think we live in a state where some over paid person, who was elected by our fellow californians, thinks this is actually ok. I can't believe politicians. It makes me sick to think people wanted these people making decisions for them. Good thing the state can find the money to spend on this, and hopefully the state will be able to find even more money when the working people can no longer afford to work do to these types of extra spending.
On another note, when was the last time you saw a power plug under a bridge? How are the HOMELESS going to charge a cell phone?!
This is so they can call future employers and keep in touch with family members?? - who are they trying to fool and darn right it's controversial.
Just another waste of money for the state that should be the last state in the union to be bankrupt. We have more $$ in this state than any other - but this foolish spending is why we're in the financial ruin we're in. Way to go wise political idiots!! Let's vote out all who voted for this bill and knock some sense into those in control. Let's make it really comfortable to be homeless and unemployed so there's no incentive to make a better life for them or their kids.
At what point are the homeless, and welfare recipients going to be held responsible for helping themselves? Free, or cut rate, housing..low cost utilities..food stamps, not to mention free food, clothing, showers, personal items from local churches and charities, educations, babysitting, and now cell phones....when does all of this end? Where's the incentive to get off their collecive backsides and go to work, and stop being a burden to those of us who work hard to have everything these people are getting for doing nothing? Now comes the holiday season...dinners, extra food, gifts. Are these people doing anything to EARN these things? What a joke!!
While 5%-10% of the homeless might take a shot at looking for work, the rest are just hanging out and...hanging out.
This is what that whack job freak in Chicago was screaming about before the election "I wannnnnt my Bammmma Phone!!!!"
Perfect. Take from those who produce and give to those who refuse to produce. A perfect end to a pleasant interlude of American Exceptionalism and Free Enterprise.
Newsflash: The homeless in this town DO have cell phones. AND they collect their monthly check from Uncle Sam, which they promptly use to buy booze and other not-so-legal substances.
Great! now my neighbor's junkie son can phone to see if we are home; and burglarize it, when we are gone.
I would say "unbeliveable" but what's the use California is lost....hope and change has arrived....
Is this a necessity during a time of record debt?
Onward asked a question about free service. The program in other states provides 260 minutes that roll over, per month.
Everybody here has said exactly what I was thinking when I read this. WHAT the &%$#! I can't believe this is happening. If they are homeless, let's not work on the fact that they need housing. Let's not "give" them something that will help to get off the streets, like working toward a JOB! Let's give them something that will enable them to talk to their friends?!?Again, WHAT!!!???
Democrats buying votes with Republican tax dollars and the liberals are good with that.
I don't blame Obama, he is what he is, I BLAME EVERY DEMOCRAT !
