GAO Report Uncovers Massive Fraud in ‘Obamaphone’ Program


Surprise, surprise, the “Obamaphone” program was found to be riddled with fraud, waste and abuse.

The Government Accountability Office has revealed that there is some massive fraud going on inside the “Obamaphone” program. The complete lack of oversight has lead to close to 40% of the free phones being used by people who may not even qualify to have one. Something needs to be done about this.

From Breitbart:

A spokesman for FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, who had already put the dubious program under review, said the “GAO report confirms that waste, fraud, and abuse are all too prevalent in the program.”

“Chairman Pai looks forward to working with his colleagues to crack down on the unscrupulous providers that abuse the program because every dollar that is spent on subsidizing somebody who doesn’t need the help by definition does not go to someone who does,” Pai’s spokesman added.

In an April interview on Fox Business Network’s Varney & Company, Commissioner Pai said he was told to keep quiet about potential fraud in the Obamaphones program.

Commissioner Pai and a group Congressional Republicans’ reforms plans for the program include setting a limited budget of $1.5 billion to the Universal Service Fund to cut waste and abuse within the program.

This is a waste of taxpayers money. On one hand I can understand the need of a phone especially when pay phones are almost obsolete. However, having a phone that has internet access is not acceptable, we don’t need to be paying for this! I think they can do even better than spending $1.5 BILLION! But maybe that’s just me, I’m frugal. These people are wasting money that America doesn’t have.

It’s a mystery that information like this is so late, coming to light. Why wasn’t this reported when Obama was in office. The media did a great job of covering everything up. More democratic fraud to add to the list.  Illegal immigrants and dead people, the foundation of the democrat voter base…
