The Walker administration has gamed our system again, by pulling an old Republican trick that worked wonders against veterans, and will no do well scamming those seeking voter ID cards.
The Bush administration advised the Veterans Administration to stop telling returning soldiers about all the benefits they were promised as a way to save money. My father, a WW2 vet, called me one day to complain about his own experience with the VA and the benefits he never knew he had. He wasn't about to use any of the freebies, that's just the way he is, but felt cheated never-the-less.
The same ploy is being used for voter ID. There are no posters, signs or counter top notices promoting free ID's for voting. Just ask? Instead, the state stands to make a profit and put in place a de facto poll tax for those who haven't thought through every possible angle of the new voter ID requirement. The state wouldn't do that, right?
Below is the consumer video making the rounds showing just how out of touch the DMV employees are with the new rules, and how big government Republicans can use their power to lawfully cheat people.
