It's not really worth discussing beyond the E-verify angle and that states have pumped up the fees for the photo ID card itself as well as pertinent documentation, certified birth certificates, marriage licenses etc etc.
Bottom line is that the Republicans have to fk with voting rights to remain relevant and even brag about it__case closed.
Much as the democrats have to pander to those who are government dependent and the illegals in this country to remain relevant.

Perhaps with the Democrats' effect on the dollar, it takes more devalued dollars to accomplish the same thing than before the Democrats had control of the value of the dollar. When the Fed is audited and it is discovered that Ben Bernanke is counterfeiting money wholesale with nothing to back it up, you'll need a wheelbarrow to carry the amount of dollar bills required to buy a loaf of bread.
... didn't you pretend to be a veteran some time ago and post some bullshit story here?
Check the exchange rates from this time in say 2006. Not much different if not higher today.

Try a new excuse.

I never pretended to be a veteran unlike some.

Why would a person get a photo ID if they survive just fine without it.
People who obviously don't drive need to gather the required documents - sometimes sending for these, find transport - sometimes over 50 miles round trip or more, to get this photo ID - all to vote.
This is a hurdle.
A hurdle Flack thinks will not stop some people from voting.
Flack is OK with as political party erecting these hurdles to win elections.

I find it quite funny that one party passes a bill to stop the other party from cheating who in turn say by passing the bill that party is trying to cheat. Only in America.

Got to chuckle when it comes to the distance hardships for obtaining a photo ID for legal Latinos. Just a few years ago many of them hiked several hundred to thousands of miles to get here and now 5 to 10 miles is a hardship!
Maybe if we put up a half-azzed fences around the DMVs it would give them some incentive.

Yes, we still blame the Democrats for the economic collapse caused by the failure of their Marxist CRA program.
This has been proven to you many times. Feel free to go back and read the proof, dumbass.
The Democrats caused the economic collapse.
The Democrats orchestrated the collapse for political purposes.
Since, the Democrats have doubled the debt, and the Democrats' version of government has to borrow 1.3 trillion dollars every year jsut for the day-to-day existence of the federal government, and they have absolutely no plan to rectify this.
An idiot can tell you this government will collapse.
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
If you start blaming debt on Democrats since they took the House in 2007, shouldn't you be blaming Republicans since 2011?

And really, your CRA excuse has been debunked a gazillion times.

Here in CT if you are renewing your license or ID you present your old ID and have your picture taken and are told to have a seat. IF it's not a renewal you have to produce ID papers, ie: birth cert, SS card, addressed utility bill envelope, etc..
The DMV's machine could process and print your ID photo license in less than 2 minutes. Instead, you wait 10 to 20 minutes while they run your name through the national crime base.
lol

Even better for catching FRAUDS, PHONIES and criminal elements then eh Grampy!

Will the White House Chefs be Sent Home?

by Keith Koffler on October 1, 2013, 7:37 am

The government shutdown that starts today results in temporary pink slips to “nonessential” government workers, begging the obvious question: Are the White House chefs essential?

The Obamas are known to eat quite well, at least in public, where they can be seen frequenting trendy spots around Washington and landing in over-priced restaurants aimed at vacationers when they’re in Hawaii and Martha’s Vineyard. At home in the White House, a team of chefs plans menus for the Obamas and prepares an endless series of tasty meals.

But the government shutdown presents the terrifying prospect that the Obamas may have to defrost a package of Lean Cuisine or open a can of meat ravioli.

The Obamas have two de facto chief chefs: Cristeta Comerford is a leftover from the Bush years who is formally the White House Executive Chef and whom the Obamas decided not to get rid of; and Sam Kass, who was imported from Chicago by the Obamas and whose title is Executive Director of Let’s Move! and Senior Policy Advisor for Nutrition Policy.

Kass came in as Comerford’s “assistant,” but with his current involvement in the first lady’s food projects, it’s not known how often he still whips up a meal. Nevertheless, it’s not clear if the Senior Policy advisor for Nutrition Policy is essential. But Kass is also a frequent golf partner of the president’s, which may increase his “essentialness.”

Also present on the grounds is an Executive Pastry Chef, who is exclusively in charge of dessert, and perhaps a lobster pot pie or two.

When the f*ck are you going to place the responsibility where it belongs.
Over 1 trillion lost in revenues. Hundreds of billions in sending to help those caught up in the mess.
If we would only spent what was coming in, we would be in a deep depression.
You are truly dumber than sh*t.
Not any Bushes fault there's so much rampant STUPID and/or greed these days.

Thing is, we should expect BETTER from leadership, rather than Worse like that is now, and than what is already rampant!

Obamacare trade-off: Lower premium, higher deductible.

Hairy Reid Senate votes to keep massive subsidy for itself... Leave it to the old elite and Hairy to pad their own lives.

Obama: Expect months of 'glitches'...after having four years to get it right.

Obama took to his Twitter account to comment on the failure to fund the government. "They actually did it," he wrote. "A group of Republicans in the House just forced a government shutdown over Obamacare instead of passing a real budget."
The Senate voted twice Monday to reject House efforts to delay the individual mandate, repeal a 2.3% tax on medical devices enacted to help pay for the law, and a proposal to eliminate a proposed subsidy to members of Congress, their staffs, and members of the Obama administration to buy insurance in the new system.
Obama reiterated that he would not sign any bill that seeks to dismantle the law. "One faction of one party in one house of Congress in one branch of government doesn't get to shut down the entire government just to refight the results of an election," Obama said at the White House.http://www.freep.com/art icle/20131001/NEWS15/310010042 /Government-shutdown-Obamacare -Affordable-Care-Act

Barack Hussein Obama II (i/b&#601;&#712;r& #593;&#720;k hu&#720;&#712;se&# 618;n o&#650;&#712;b&#59 3;&#720;m&#601;/; born August 4, 1961) is the 44th and current President of the United States, the first African American to hold the office. Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, Obama is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he was president of the Harvard Law Review. He was a community organizer in Chicago before earning his law degree. He worked as a civil rights attorney in Chicago and taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004. He served three terms representing the 13th District in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004, running unsuccessfully for the United States House of Representatives in 2000.

In 2004, Obama received national attention during his campaign to represent Illinois in the United States Senate with his victory in the March Democratic Party primary, his keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in July, and his election to the Senate in November. He began his presidential campaign in 2007, and in 2008, after a close primary campaign against Hillary Rodham Clinton, he won sufficient delegates in the Democratic Party primaries to receive the presidential nomination. He then defeated Republican nominee John McCain in the general election, and was inaugurated as president on January 20, 2009. Nine months later, Obama was named the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate. He was re-elected president in November 2012, defeating Republican nominee Mitt Romney, and was sworn in for a second term on January 20, 2013.

Early in his first term in office, Obama signed into law economic stimulus legislation in response to the Great Recession in the form of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010. Other major domestic initiatives in his presidency include the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, often referred to as "Obamacare"; the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act; the Don't Ask, Don't Tell Repeal Act of 2010; the Budget Control Act of 2011; and the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012. In May 2012, he became the first sitting U.S. president to publicly support same-sex marriage and in 2013 his administration filed briefs which urged the Supreme Court to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act of 1996 and California's Proposition 8 as unconstitutional. In foreign policy, Obama ended U.S. military involvement in the Iraq War, ordered troop buildup and drawdown in Afghanistan, signed the New START arms control treaty with Russia, ordered U.S. military involvement in Libya, and ordered the military operation that resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden

Obama was born on August 4, 1961,[1] at Kapi&#699;olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital (now Kapi&#699;olani Medical Center for Women and Children) in Honolulu, Hawaii,[2][3][4] and is the first President to have been born in Hawaii.[5] His mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was born in Wichita, Kansas, and was of mostly English ancestry.[6] His father, Barack Obama, Sr., was a Luo from Nyang’oma Kogelo, Kenya. Obama's parents met in 1960 in a Russian class at the University of Hawai&#699;i at M&#257;noa, where his father was a foreign student on scholarship.[7][8] The couple married in Wailuku on Maui on February 2, 1961,[9][10] and separated when Obama's mother moved with their newborn son to Seattle, Washington, in late August 1961, to attend the University of Washington for one year. In the meantime, Obama, Sr. completed his undergraduate economics degree in Hawaii in June 1962, then left to attend graduate school at Harvard University on a scholarship. Obama's parents divorced in March 1964.[11] Obama Sr. returned to Kenya in 1964 where he remarried; he visited Barack in Hawaii only once, in 1971.[12] He died in an automobile accident in 1982 when his son was 21 years old.[13]

In 1963, Dunham met Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian East–West Center graduate student in geography at the University of Hawaii, and the couple were married on Molokai on March 15, 1965.[14] After two one-year extensions of his J-1 visa, Lolo returned to Indonesia in 1966, followed sixteen months later by his wife and stepson in 1967, with the family initially living in a Menteng Dalam neighborhood in the Tebet subdistrict of south Jakarta, then from 1970 in a wealthier neighborhood in the Menteng subdistrict of central Jakarta.[15] From ages six to ten, Obama attended local Indonesian-language schools: St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School for two years and Besuki Public School for one and a half years, supplemented by English-language Calvert School homeschooling by his mother.[16]
