03/07/2007 Archived Entry: "Uh oh. Congress wants to close another "loophole""

A CONGRESSTHINGIE wants to "close the loophole" that allows Bank of America to offer secured credit cards without SSNs. She wants to require "secure forms of identification" so that the "integrity and security of our financial institutions will remain intact." Uh huh. Of course it's only aimed at those other people (illegal immigrants). Move along, move along. Nothing here that concerns you.

Okay, I know it's a damnfool question, and I'm merely showing my dinosaurish age and outlook by asking. But why does an alleged Republican in Congress believe it's a "loophole" for a bank to be free to choose its own customers?
