    The video at the link is fairly short and worth the watch. Yep, he has it right. The people that are really being screwed are the poor, the elderly, and the disabled. As the interview points out, that "free card" turns out costing more than poll taxes did.

    Didn't bother to watch the video, did you? Yes, the photo id laws disproportionately effect the poor, the elderly, and the disabled. Yes, for those without identification now, the cost of getting the so-called "free id" costs more than the poll taxes in the '60s. You can repeat your lie all you want, but Moyers is spot on.

    So tell me, Dick Tuck, how do "the poor", "the elderly", and "the disabled" purchase alcohol and/or cigarettes, cash a personal check, apply for food stamps, use a credit card, apply for a passport, apply for Medicaid or Medicare, etc., WITHOUT providing proof of their age and/or proof of who they are?

    Not requiring voters to prove who they are leaves the door wide open for VOTER FRAUD, which is EXACTLY what you and leftists like Bill Moyers want.

    The leftist definition of "voter suppression" is SUPPRESSION OF VOTER FRAUD.

    I'm so tired of this topic. If either party is relying on those who can't muster enough chutzpa in 4 years to register to vote then get an acceptable ID, they deserve to lose. Simple; case closed.

    That being said, 100% of this nonsense could be removed if the States just issued photographic copies of the voter registration cards.

    Doesnt matter is the answer to all those. All you have to know is that a lot of people dont have an ID. Start from there and you will see that if they dont have it, it suppresses their ability to vote.
