The Wall Street Journal Weighs In

The Wall Street Journal Online posted a good editorial yesterday entitled REAL ID Revolt.

The article gives a brief history of the REAL ID Act and says,
Two years later, a growing number of states are telling Congress what it can do with its de facto national ID card decree.

There are a good number of states lined up in opposition to REAL ID, and we can only hope that the number grows. The editorial discusses Representative Sensenbrenner's involvement in this disastrous (and non-conservative) law:
Senate Judiciary Chairman Pat Leahy has scheduled a hearing for today on Real ID, the kind of session that usually takes place before something becomes law. Perhaps Mr. Sensenbrenner should be invited to explain the national revolt against his handiwork.

Please read the entire editorial here.
