Sensenbrenner Strikes again – H.R. 418: National ID Bill

From the taking away our rights to make us safer department, Wisconsin Republican Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, assured of a safe seat, has introduced a National ID bill (H.R. 418). I wonder if any of his constituents understand or support this initiative.

We remember Sensenbrenner’s earlier efforts on behalf of his Hollywood constituents…

How any of this benefits Wisconsin’s citizens or economy is beyond me. Sensenbrenner is a poster boy for congressional redistricting reform.

Decland McCullagh forwarded this:

You will remember that late last year, Congress passed (and the
President signed) legislation which starts us down the road to a
National ID card. In the name of preventing alien terrorists from
operating in this country, the so-called Intelligence Reform bill gave
federal bureaucrats unprecedented new powers to force changes in
state-issued driver’s licenses — including, possibly, the addition of
computer chip technology that can facilitate the tracking of all
U.S. citizens.

Now, the House will be debating new legislation, H.R. 418, that was
recently introduced by Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R-WI). In
considering this bill, the U.S. House will vote on whether to empower
the federal government to determine who can get a driver’s license —
and under what conditions..
