In my opinion, this bill shows the hypocrisy of congress

Why must people have IDs for this program but not to vote?  This pretty much proves congressional objections to requiring people to have IDs are about getting votes, not whether people can afford the IDs.  This is one of those unintended mistakes which shows so many members of congress are concerned more about their party then they are their country.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
