Check your cell phone bill. Another program initiated by our out of control government without any accountability which you’re paying for on your monthly cell phone bill.
To participate in the program, consumers must either have an income that is at or below 135% of the federal Poverty Guidelines or participate in one of twelve (12) assistance programs offered by the government.
According to the FCC Encyclopedia on Lifeline Program for Low-Income Consumers
Federal rules prohibit eligible low-income consumers from receiving more than one Lifeline discount per household. An eligible consumer may receive a discount on either a wireline or wireless service, but not both. A consumer whose household currently is receiving more than one Lifeline service must select a single Lifeline provider and contact the other provider to de-enroll from their program. Consumers violating this rule may also be subject to criminal and/or civil penalties. (Obviously no one is responsible for enforcing this rule or this woman wouldn’t have 30 cell phones at your expense)???
Thank you Congressman Griffin (R-Ark) for exposing this!! Remember the saying, “silence implies consent”. If you don’t complain to your representatives until something is done about this then you deserve what you get. No more Mr. Nice Guy.! Stand up and be counted!
