Well we need to make sure poor people aren't committing some kind of fraud and wasting resources. It's surely one of our main problems! Sure there's the financial industry, MIC, fossil fuel industry, pharma, insurance, big Ag, corrupt politicians, etc, but we gotta keep an eye on those sneaky poor people!!

❤️Noted...Thanking you kindly...Well this is a kick in the guts for poorer people. I guess if these same people voted for him, then the gloss on his fan club will soon wear off. Never the less it is calling the kettle black when he walks around with the latest gadgets and everything at beck and call. Maybe he doesn't want American poorer children getting an education. Just keep the poor bare foot and pregnant.❤️

President Agent Orange need more money to pay for his hike of the Military Budget by 10%,I think you'll lose more than internet if he gets his will.

The only ones committing widescale and widespread fraud on an industrial, IS THE Corporate Capitalist industry itself. I hope some can see that.

If you are on food stamps or SNAP you get a phone with limited hours for free. It helps the old feel safer and helps the young make their connections. It's not like everyone is handed an iPhone and a 50" flat screen with premium channels. Surely he will try to cut off the ability of all to get news and information -
- just like Putin.

He is a very dark man with a darker agenda. Who would like nothing more that send us back to the dark ages. Especially low income people.who have the nerve to demand basic human rights. Shameful.

The key word is 'poised'. If it happens I will be outraged. If it's a democrat's incitement with no basis I will be ashamed I was ever a democrat even though I no longer belong to either dirty party.

Trump has always been an arrogant, spoiled, mean bully. Why did anyone want that as president?

Trump and his administration don't care about the middle class, working class and the poor. Trump is so out of touch that he probably doesn't realize that most job appliccations are online so having computer access at home is vital.

Good evening and thank you for this article - which i read and noted- IT IS SO SAD -that the poor-and middle class -young and old voted for trump because they believed he would improve their life- UNFORTUNATELY- IT IS THE PERFECT OPPOSITE - he and his alt right neo nazi administration-BANNON- PENCE-PREBIUS- SPICER- CONWAY- SESSIONS- his billionaire cabinet and all the cabinet heads that have their orders from BANNON - destroy each and every department and end all rules and regulations that help citizens - all he is interested in -is to help him self- his family-his friends -his donors and wall street- so sad -sincerely KAY M.
