President Trump has brought a lot of needed change to America in just the first few weeks since he’s been in office. However, nothing has caused as much outrage as his most recent surprise that Barack Obama’s welfare gluttons didn’t see coming and thought their favorite freebie was safe.
It’s the end of the road for freeloaders in America who have enjoyed the ride for eight years and are now being abruptly kicked off the benefits bus — at least where one particularly prized possession is concerned. The days of taking advantage of the taxpayers are over and these leeches can’t really complain since Trump isn’t just giving their Obama gift the boot, he’s also created of jobs in this country so if they want it back, they can work for it and buy it themselves.
Despite not having to work to eat or house themselves, Obama gave them a free phone to use for anything other than better their situation. Conservative Tribune reports that what was infamously known as the “Obamaphone” and a trademark of his leadership is about to be a thing of the past now that Trump has put Ajit Pai in place to straighten out the badly abused welfare budget that’s been riddled by wasteful spending — namely a phone to aid in debauchery and possibly drug dealing.
Pai is the new chairman of the Federal Communications Commission and is taking assertive steps to cut out heaps of waste, fraud, and abuse Obama created with this horribly defunct and irresponsible “Obamaphone Program,” according to Breitbart. The purpose of the program was first designed in the Reagan era as a necessity for people who were looking for employment and needed a way to be reached during that process. This seemed reasonable for low-income families who were given a tax-paid landline but was later exploited by Obama by turning the need into greed and giving people smartphones with no requirement to look for work or hold a job.
At best, this benefit should have been kept to a home phone with service ending after a reasonable period of not getting a job or trying to find one. This isn’t about being racist, kicking people when they’re down, or anything else the left is quick to claim. It’s about empowering people to work and earn what they want and not take advantage of the people who do so they don’t have to. If this was an innocent a necessary part of welfare, it wouldn’t be the biggest fraudulently used and abused freebie out there.
Wanting and needing something is the best motivation for getting to work and earning it. When it’s given to people who already lack drive, the desire to get it on your own is gone. Eventually, the funds will run out as long as there are freeloaders living off the system and taking advantage of it. This is basic economics that somehow our former president who came to the White House from a Community Organizer job didn’t seem to grasp and hardworking Americans paid for it.
