The Lifeline program often referred to as "Obama Phone," or "Government Phone" has been revealed as a rip-off ridden problem after hidden cameras revealed extensive consumer fraud practices taking advantage of weaknesses in the program. Undercover video by activist James O'Keefe's Veritas Project shows two distributors of the "Obama phones" (meant to be used by the needy) distributing them out to people who suggested the people could resell their free phones for illegal drug funding, to buy frivolous personal items, or to pay off their debts. Reportedly, people distributing out the phones joked about how easy it was to get free phones an then resell them. Six million people have received Lifeline "Obama phones" under the program, which charged taxpayers about $3 billion in 2012. The program has been lambasted from citizens and politicians who call it an obvious example of governmental incompetence and wastefulness. Legislation in congress was introduced this year to take out the cell phone part of the program. "This phone program has expanded far beyond its original intent, and having Washington force people to pay for free cell phones for others is offensive enough, but the waste, fraud, and abuse is beyond words," GOP Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana told MailOnline. "The free government cell phones issue just keeps getting more outrageous." Vitter is trying to defund the program, but Harry Reid blocked the vote. In 2012, the FCC reviewed of the program and found that at least 41 percent of applicants who received phones did not confirm their actual eligibility.
