The Texas Lege

They gave us a watered down "Voter ID" bill, which exempts the 'elderly'. indigent and the poor from having to show their ID wile voting.
The forms of ID that are acceptable are .gov issued IDs ...and....utiliy bills- with your name the name you want to use on it.'s a start.

NOW in the upcoming legislative calender is a Credit Card ID bill that will force stores to check IDs when using credit cards. Basically they'll have to show the same ID that check writers do.

And I'm waiting for the usual outcries about the elderly, poor, indigent and the rest of the floor show about people being repressed -or something- for having to prove who they are.

State Sen. Leticia Van de Putte (D-San Antonio), don't you care about the poor? your opposition to a voter ID act that's at least as strong as a Credit Card bill some how ....politically motivated?
