House Democrats voted 192-4 today against requiring identification for federal elections. The bill passed because Republicans voted 224-3 in favor. The bill is a result of the bi-partisan Commission on Federal Election Reform. This is not the first time Democrats have opposed this type of legislation.
Why don't Democrats want to require identification? Is it truly because they believe it "would place an insurmountable burden on voters and infringe upon their voting rights?"
Democrats oppose the bill because their constituencies are full of illegal aliens, dead people, and imaginary people. It is that simple. Their argument is fallacious, specious, and outrageous.
Not surprisingly, Democrats have compared the legislation to "segregation-era measures aimed at disenfranchising Southern blacks." Typical.
