    Fraud happens. YOu dishonest hacks try to pretend that because their is fraud, we must shut down the entire process. That can apply to everything. There is fraud in the military, should we shut that down? It's a disingenuous and frankly completely idiotic position to take.

    You can't actually argue against the benefits of a program like this, or you just don't want poor people and minorities to get any help, so you have to be dishonest and pretend because there is fraud, the program is a failure or should go away.

    Then shut down everything, because wherever there is money, there will be fraud
    Its called cherry picking. Southern dadd hates the poor who might be cheatin' the system, but if guys like trump do it he turns a blind eye.

    I would like to point out the simple fact that in most cases, a smart phone is the only internet access a poor person may have. Now, I'll let you figure out how access to the internet might help someone find a job.

    Waste of time.

    I do know there is fraud in the program because I barely know a person who worked for the program. She obtained phones for the entire family. These are the same people who rant and rave about blacks on welfare,then brag about their free Phones.

    Note,the whole family hated Obama,love Trump. One is on Medicare,the rest on Medicaid,another on disability at a young age because he was attacked and now has panic attacks.

    An example of those who voted for Trump.

    I was thinking along those lines. Complaints about federal waste tend to come from those who can't get their snout in that particular trough.

    But that is the problem. They DO have their snout in the public trough. In health care,Government pensions,then working on SS to get a second pension,plus Medicare when they are old enough.

    They just object to others getting anything because in their minds it is THeir money!

    The dishonesty of the partisan hacks like the OP is astounding. That and the complete stupidity. So, it says it waste so much money because of fraud. THat goes for everything. What it apparently doesn't take into account the positive effect. THe article tries to spin it that the program is a complete waste because there is fraud. THeir is fraud in every program, by companies, pretty much everyting where money is involved someone will find a way to fraud.

    According to idiot's logic, that means we should do away with everything I guess. You know what creates the most amount of fraud and most of taxpayer money? The military. Talk about wastes and fraud. Bogus wars are started to line the pockets of defense contractors

    Compared to special tax breaks for the wealthy, a drop in the bucket.

    That is a serious question.
