Whats the big deal??? Poor people cant have nice things?
Sure they can.
If they pay for it.
On MY dime, they can have food stamps that preferably only pay for basic food stuffs that fill dietary requirements. None of this junk food, steaks, ice cream, etc. that I see people in my city buying with EBT cards.
Cell Phones are not necessary for a person’s survival. Home phones aren’t even necessary for that matter.
