Looks Like I’ll Be Walking Soon

Congress will require 4 ID’s to get a drivers license .

Congress is on the verge of passing a plan that could discourage illegal immigration by requiring applicants for state-issued driver’s licenses — roughly 70 million people a year — to produce four types of identification at motor vehicle offices.
Most who apply for new licenses — and presumably, those seeking renewals — would have to prove that they are in the USA legally, document their Social Security number and home address, and show a photo ID. Motor vehicle department employees then would have to verify the documents with federal databases, a potentially lengthy process that could mean an end to same-day license renewals.

How many people can produce four ID’s? I know I couldn’t.

The Congressional Budget Office says it would cost states $100 million over five years. The act’s author, Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., says, “If somebody has to stand in line a few minutes more (for a license), that’s a small price to pay than having thousands or tens of thousands of people die in a terrorist attack.”

In other words, another unfunded mandate. This time to invade your privacy, cause hey, 9/11 changed everything and proved big brother wathing you ain’t so bad after all. To qoute Spirit “1984 knocking at your door, will you let it in…?”

    Think they’ll accept an old, out of state driver’s license as one of the IDs? :^)
