I'm just shaking my head -- but I'm no longer surprised

Bold is mine:

The 844-page immigration reform bill the bipartisan “Gang of Eight” dropped in the dead of night contains a lucrative handout that would give taxpayer-funded free cell phones to some people who live or work near the U.S. border with Mexico.

Pages 43 and 44 of the bill detail what one conservative blogger, Javier Manjarres of Shark Tank, has already described as the “ObamaPhone” from Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL).

That section reads: Manjarres first found the immigration bill’s free cell phone goodies and dubbed the handout the “MarcoPhone.”

“Move over ‘Obama phone,’ we present the new ‘Hola, Como Estas?!’ MarcoPhone,”

Manjarres wrote on Wednesday morning. Rubio spokesman Alex Conant did not return a request for comment from Breitbart News.

Interestingly, Tracphone, a company that will likely benefit from this type of government program, is based in Rubio’s Miami, Florida. More at Breitbart.com:

Prolly just a coincidence, right? I mean, politicians NEVER squander your money by giving it to their friends and donors.
