Federal spending outrage of the day:
Last year, a federal program paid out $1.6 billion to cover free cell phones and the monthly bills of 12.5 million wireless accounts. The program, overseen by the FCC and intended to help low-income Americans, is popular for obvious reasons, with participation rising steeply since 2008, when the government paid $772 million for phones and monthly bills.
C'mon, liberal defenders of an ever-expanding safety net. Isn't this one of bit much even for you?
