YET ANOTHER GROUP IS (RIGHTLY) WORRIED that yet another law is going to create a national ID card.
All these groups are right about all these dreadful laws. But in this case, they're agitating about nine years late. The groundwork for his particular program was laid in 1996, in public law 104-208, Division C, Title IV, Subtitle A, Sections 401-404. I wrote about it in I Am Not a Number! That law created a pilot program giving the Social Security Administration direct, immediate approval over who's "allowed" to get a job and who isn't.
I've been waiting for the other shoe to drop all these years -- and it looks as if it finally might. Aaron Zelman, it's your pal, your own beloved "representative" in Congress, James Sensenbrenner, who's responsible for this one -- just as he was the big mover behind the Real National ID law. You and the other locals up there in Wisconsinland really need to start heating up a bucket of tar and plucking some chickens.
