After reading some of the comments here I understand that the elderly do benefit from this, but if you're a young family with children I question why on earth would you be having kids if you can't even afford a friggen cell phone? I think that their should be laws enacted to prevent people from having kids if you cannot provide for them. It's clear that people will not make the correct decision on their own in this matter, SO laws should be in place to prevent intentional stupidity. They know the government will give them assistance at the tax payers expense. All together different problem I know but I'm sick of people taking advantage of the system and expecting the rest of us to pay their way. LAZY and their probably damn LIBERALS.
