FCC on path to dismantle popular Lifeline program

If you thought the recent move by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to repeal net neutrality laws was it, guess again.  Now, the popular Lifeline program, which provides affordable phone and Internet access, is also on the chopping block.

The Lifeline program provides a modest $9.25 monthly subsidy to most recipients so that millions of poor people can connect to communications services.   Concerned constituents claim that this plan would make it difficult for them to search for jobs, advance their education, meet their basic needs and stay informed while the FCC claims the program has led to abuse and fraud.
