Let's get to the real point: What does an iPhone cost? Six, seven hundred? How many months of health insurance will that buy you? Two, three?
The real point is people like Jason Chaffetz don't want poor people to have any of the "nice" things available to wealthier folk. How can we feel our birthright of privilege if poor people can have the same things we have? This is the same attitude as the "people shouldn't be able to buy steaks with food stamps" bunch.
