Those ‘ObamaPhones’ helping major Democrat-Obama donor TracFone profit nicely

obama-dick-in-mouthRemember a few days ago when a loony Obama voter was screaming about those ‘free’ ObamaPhones? Well, they aren’t really free. The government has to buy the phones and minutes to give to these parasites which means our tax dollars are paying for these free ‘ObamaPhones.’ But guess which company is profiting from this ObamaPhones? It’s none other than a wireless company called ‘TracFone.’ The individual who runs TracFone just so happens to be a major Obama bundler. In fact, the head of the company has raised a whopping $1.5 million for Obama since 2007! Yet another, the media ignores this conflict of interest.

One of the major providers of the free cell phones—3.8 million subscribers as of late 2011—is Miami-based TracFone Wireless, a company whose president and CEO, Frederick “F.J.” Pollak, has donated at least $156,500 to Democratic candidates and committees this cycle, including at least $50,000 to the Obama campaign.

Pollak’s wife, Abigail, is a campaign bundler for Obama who has raised more than $632,000 for the president this cycle, and more than $1.5 million since 2007. She has personally contributed more than $200,000 to Democratic candidates and committees since 2008.

    SafeLink
    is run by a subsidiary of América Móvil, the world’s fourth largest
    wireless company in terms of subscribers, but it is not paid for
    directly by the company. Nor is it paid for with “tax payer money,” as
    the e-mail claims. Rather, it is funded
    through the Universal Service Fund, which is administered by the
    Universal Service Administrative Company, an independent, not-for-profit
    corporation set up by the Federal Communications Commission. The USF is
    sustained by contributions from telecommunications companies such as
    “long distance companies, local telephone companies, wireless telephone
    companies, paging companies, and payphone providers.” The companies
    often charge customers to fund their contributions in the form of a
    universal service fee you might see on your monthly phone bill. The fund
    is then parceled out to companies, such as América Móvil, that create
    programs, such as SafeLink, to provide telecommunications service to
    rural areas and low-income households.

    The
    president has no direct impact on the program, and one could hardly
    call these devices “Obama Phones,” as the e-mail author does. This
    specific program, SafeLink, started under President George Bush, with
    grants from an independent company created under
    President Bill Clinton, which was a legacy of an act passed under
    President Franklin Roosevelt, which was influenced by an agreement
    reached between telecommunications companies and the administration of
    President Woodrow Wilson.
