If you recall during the years, yes years (plural) long debate about photo ID in Wisconsin, the always whiny, crying, moaning, groaning 20% (80%, including many Democrats favored photo ID) complained loudly that too many folks couldn’t get to a place that had the IDs and even if they could, they couldn’t afford it.
Never mind that in today’s day and age you can’t live or survive without photo ID that is required for:
Obtaining food stamps
Adopting a pet
Purchase a gun
Writing a check at the grocery store
Making a credit card purchase at Best Buy
Applying for a loan to purchase anything
Starting a new bank account
Getting a marriage license
Closing on a house
Getting medical care
Picking up a mailbox key from the US Post Office
Getting on a plane
Renting an apartment
Renting a video
Applying for a job
Getting a hotel room
Renting a car
Offering free IDs was the final blow in the arguments of foolish photo ID opponents. Surely, now all these civic-minded folks who were being disenfranchised of their right to vote would rush to get their free IDs so they could continue to vote for liberal Democrats.
