Scott Walker is probably best known for proving how much of a failure Republican policies are. Whether it’s destroying his state’s economy with right to work legislation or crushing the spirit of democracy by suppressing voting, Scott Walker has yet to meet a terrible idea he wasn’t willing to sign into law.
Gov. Scott Walker has signed a bill that hinders Milwaukee's efforts to provide local photo IDs to the homeless, immigrants in the country illegally and others who have difficulty obtaining state IDs.
The Republican-backed bill prohibits towns and counties from spending money on or issuing photo IDs. It also prohibits using city or village IDs to vote or obtain public benefits, like food stamps.
The only good news here is for Scott Walker and other Republicans who cannot win an election when the majority of people are allowed to vote. Besides being a blow to the democratic process of Wisconsin, this is also a pretty racist bill that will stymie attempts of progressives to help the homeless and newly immigrated to obtain prescriptions and open bank accounts—you know, have the foundation in our society for a decent standard of living.
