GOP USA reported:
You’ve heard of the “Obama phone” — the so-called “free” cell phones given away to people at the expense of taxpayers. Now, the Obama Administration through Attorney General Eric Holder has a new plan: “free” cell phones and bus money. That’s right. Become a convict and get free counseling, phones, training… you name it! This is our government at work!
On Monday, the Department of Justice announced a new program which AG Eric Holder says “will require all 200-plus halfway houses in the federal system to offer standardized treatment to prisoners with mental health and substance abuse issues.”
In addition to those programs, the halfway houses will “have to provide greater assistance to inmates who are pursuing job opportunities, such as permitting cell phones to be used by inmates and providing funds for transportation.”
