Expensive, unconstitutional, big government, big brother, unsecure bullshit National ID.
Dear Ms. Keller:
Thank you for contacting me about national identification cards. I appreciate having the benefit of your comments on this important matter.
As you may know, the REAL ID Act (H.R. 418) was introduced by Congressman James Sensenbrenner on January 6, 2005. It was added to the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for Defense, the Global War on Terror, and Tsunami Relief, 2005 (H.R. 1268), which was introduced by Representative Jerry Lewis on March 11, 2005, and passed the House, as amended, on March 16, 2005. An amended H.R. 1268 passed the Senate on April 21, 2005, by a vote of 99–0, but did not include the REAL ID Act provisions.
A conference report resolving differences between the two versions of the bill (H.Rept. 109-72) passed the House on May 5, 2005, and the Senate on May 10, 2005, before being enacted into law on May 11, 2005. The version of the REAL ID Act (P.L. 109-13, Division B) ultimately enacted includes most of the provisions of the REAL ID Act that initially passed the House, though some changes were made to certain REAL ID Act provisions. I supported the REAL ID Act as I believe it to be an important component of national security.
I appreciate having the opportunity to represent Texans in the United States Senate. Thank you for taking the time to contact me.
United States Senator
He's a remote control robot for Bush. Does absolutely everything he's told. I sometimes wonder why I bother.
Thanks for the detailed explanation of WHY you support this piece of crap, jackass.
