The senate passed the national ID bill 100-0 yesterday. Absolutely unreal. I guess it makes sense, though - the bill was attached to an $83 billion spending fund to go to military errors and tsunami victim help, and what senator would want to have their name go down in history as the person who voted against helping victims and against supporting the troops? Ugh. How irresponsible.

Fortunately, many governers and other state officials are fighting against the national ID proposal. Many claim that the costs involved for individual states are unreasonable, and that provisions have already been made to secure identification. Currently, states do not need to comply with the national ID bill, although tax penalties may apply.
