Did you have that link so we can be on the same page? I don't think want to go hunting for what you are talking about only to find something different. That tends to lead to confusing in a forum.

I'm not hand feeding you info. I told you it was the FCC audit and it was on their website.
Congress ordered it when the cost for the cell phone program exploded.

Then I guess this conversation is over....I am not trying to argue with you over this, I simply wanted to know what audit you were referring to, heck, I might actually agree with you if I knew what you were referring to....but for some reason you don't want to specifically share the information you are referring to, so then what is the point in continuing?

I agree that they help people in need, but the largest voices against government aid are conservatives (mostly politicians and other right wing mouthpieces like Rush and Hannity). And I don't think there is a single conservative in office that isn't a Christian. I guess I should have worded myself better so as not to imply all conservatives and Christians, but the largest voices against gov't aid are right wing Christians. I mostly pointed out the Christian part because I can't believe that Jesus would approve of the right wing application of Christianity, and on that note most conservatives would look down on a homeless, jobless middle eastern socialist that preached an ancient version of universal healthcare. Churches do a lot to try and take care of the poor this is undeniable and I will agree with you 100%. But food pantries are only a cheap fix that doesn't get to the core of the problem which is a perpetual cycle that actually runs on the existence of poor people. Poverty is intentionally manufactured, or at the very least intentionally untreated. Charity takes the edge off of the sting, but the main culprits of poverty are those who are a corporate succubus, namely, but not exclusively, conservative hardliners
