I got a tip from a friend about this and decided to do a little journalistic investigation. I interviewed a past participant who was gracious enough to give up his spot in line and explain, as an “Obamaphone” user, how this government giveaway works. I was surprised to find out by talking to some of those standing in line that they were very unhappy with the quality of their “free phone”.
My interviewee explained you had to have at least 2 forms of Identification (ID) to participate. Watch and listen to his answer when I mention the irony of requiring ID for a phone but not to vote. And his realization that Obama doesn’t pay for these phones….. is priceless.
