In NY, to make the welfare recipients feel MORE EQUAL, we give them FREE CELL PHONES, with 250 talk and text messages per month. AND for ONLY $30.00 more, they can get unlimited talk, text and web. I pay $66.50 per month for 550 minutes of talk only. That includes $14.00 of TAXES. Who is gonna make me MORE EQUAL, after I worked for 25 years and my hubby for 40 years? If they have $30.00 to spend on unlimited service, take away their foodstamps, rent subsidy, free health care, etc, etc. We are heading down the toilet. Remember when Nero fiddled, while Rome burned? Don't ask our grandchildren ! They won't be taught that.
