World’s richest man and Obama donor Carlos Slim getting richer off those ‘ObamaPhones’
But wait! I thought the evil ‘rich’ people are bad? Leftists, occupiers always scream EAT THE RICH! Oh, that’s just rich people who don’t bow to the leftist Democrats and Obama in this country. Obama has plenty of rich pals like George Clooney, Jay-Z, and various other Hollywood hacks. The world’s richest man is Carlos Slim, has an estimated net worth of $70 billion and just so happens to own a controlling stake in TracFone. According to Fox News, Carlos Slim is making $10 per phone that are given to the so called poor people.
Carlos Slim, who has an estimated net worth of $70 billion, owns a controlling stake in TracFone, which makes $10 per phone for each device it provides to poor Americans. The company, whose president and CEO is Frederick “F.J.” Pollak, also makes money from extra minutes and data plans it sells to subscribers who get phones and service through the government’s Lifeline program. The program, which began in the mid-1980s, has exploded in the past four years after being expanded from supplying landlines to the poor to providing cellular phones.
The phones came into the national spotlight after a viral video surfaced on YouTube in which a Cleveland, Ohio, woman praised the president, saying he needed to be re-elected because he gives out free phones.
