“The Universal Service Fund (USF) was created by the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 1997 to meet Congressional universal service goals as mandated by the Telecommunications Act of 1996. The 1996 Act states that all providers of telecommunications services should contribute to federal universal service in some equitable and nondiscriminatory manner; there should be specific, predictable, and sufficient Federal and State mechanisms to preserve and advance universal service; all schools, classrooms, health care providers, and libraries should, generally, have access to advanced telecommunications services; and finally, that the Federal-State Joint Board and the FCC should determine those other principles that, consistent with the 1996 Act, are necessary to protect the public interest. The USF deals with Programs offered to Low Income Individuals as mandated by The Telecommunications Act of 1996 which was signed into law by Bill Clinton.”

“The ad that reference this debate is talking primarily about cell phones, 1996-1997, not many people had cell phones.  This program with the 250 free minutes of cell phone use exploded during the Bush Administration.  I noticed you didn't bring that up.  The state of Tennessee in 2007 was offering this CELL PHONE program to low income people.  Bush pushed the program and the funding behind it.  It is taxpayers funded.”

“Read the Fricken' Article
"Lifeline; it began in 1984 -- Ronald Reagan was president then, for your information -- as a landline-only program, and President Clinton expanded it to include cell phones in 1996, according to the Atlantic Wire."

Was suppose to be a Landline-Only Program started by Republican...Then the Democrats expanded it to Cell Phones....Give me a break...”

“Articles is NOT COMPLETE,  Bush started the cell phone and it expanded ten-folds under his administration.  How many people do you know had cell phones in 1996, NOT MANY.”

“Seriously, people,  BUSH started, expanded the cell phone thingy.  How many people had cell phone or use for them in 1996?  I remember in 2008, when the program started in Tennessee under BUSH, 250 free minutes to extremely poor.  BUSH started the cell phone thingy!!!!”

“First, if they are having problems with liquids "after" the security checkpoint then they should be checking at the stores inside the airport where it is sold rather than random checks of the passengers after they bought it. It hasn't happened to me yet but if it does I will pour some in my hand first and let them test it there. But nothing is going into the bottle that I am drinking from. TSA should have a disposable cup that you can pour a little water sample into for testing. People are more upset about something going into the bottle that they are drinking from let alone with random Government "Search and Seizure" in which we should be protected from by the Constitution.”

“the post office is not a business, and its purpose is not to make money.”

“What bill would that be ? No tax payer funds are used to run the Post Office, and run it by postal charges only.”

“Your state and federal governments aren't holding a gun to your head and forcing you to open your wallet to Netflix, are they?”
