Don't cut cellphones

More spin from our representative, U.S. Rep. Keith Rothfus. I love how conservatives go after the cellphones from the federal government under the Lifeline Program (“Instead of ‘sequester,' take a scalpel to spending,” VND, Feb. 27).

If the congressman had any sense at all, he would know that these phones are for seniors and disabled low-income people. I know there are budget problems, but why is it Republicans seem hellbent on going after the most vulnerable?

I wonder if Rothfus knows that an SSI recipient receives $710 per month. Try living on that, Mr. Rothfus.
