Jesus you people are even stupider then I thought. No the first program to give phones to poor people was started in 84 was not for cell phones it was for phones. Just like the program is still for phones. Apparently it is only the not so bright who still think of cell phones as luxury items. A cell phone is just a phone and in some cases providing cell services is cheaper than providing land line service so they give cell phones.
By the way the expansion to cell phones was under Bush.
