We have also added a short history on each of the 13 programs including historical spending and analysis. Each program has a separate page – See the summary in Federal Programs.
We have also added the Lifeline Program to the Federal Programs which make up the Antipoverty Safety Net. Lifeline provides subsidized phone service, including cell phones, to low-income Americans. The program has grown over two fold in the last three years and is paid for by taxes on everybody’s phone bill.
