That's the newest campaign of the parasite left, as promoted here and advertised here. They want the federal government, via the Universal Service Fund, to help pay for mobile phone and broadband internet for the poor. This isn't really news, as Obama has been pushing for the government to work towards ending the digital divide, which is Beltway-speak for "make overtaxed working-,middle-, and upper-class white people pay even more money to give free stuff to blacks and Mexicans."
According to this article, the average cost of broadband internet is $35/month, which adds up to $420 a year. Liberals practically worship poor people, but the vast majority of poor people (excluding Mexican immigrants who work multiple jobs) are lazy, lack a decent work ethic, and are undependable. I used to be a bleeding heart liberal, but my exposure to ghetto trash of all races while working in various jobs during high school and college helped to cure me of that affliction. I've worked with poor people who would spend their weekends going to "da club", smoking various types of illegal and legal drugs, and getting drunk. They would come in the next morning forty-five minutes late due to a hangover (hence, the "undependable" part), while the rest of the week they would incessantly complain about being broke. For the price of one Saturday night's worth of clubbing and drinking, the poor could buy a month's worth of broadband Internet access.
