Regarding the LRC article today about the REAL ID, I must point out that when it passed in 2005, Bush the Republican was the president and the Republicans controlled both Houses of Congress. Every Republican in the Senate voted for the REAL ID legislation (H.R.1268, PL 109-13). In the House, the Republican vote for the REAL ID legislation was 225-3. Ron Paul, of course, was one of the no votes.
