"An Alternative Plan for Implementing the REAL ID Act
House bill H.R. 5405, short titled the "Social Security Identity Theft
Prevention Act," was introduced Feb. 13, 2008 by Rep. Mark Kirk (R-IL). The
stated purpose of H.R. 5405 is to protect seniors from identity theft and to
strengthen national security. The bill is currently in referral to the House
Ways and Means Committee.
The bill calls for redesigning the Social Security card to include a photo,
fingerprint, barcode, magnetic strip, and computer data chip. That would for
all practical purposes transform the Social Security card into a National ID
card administered by the Social Security Administration."
Gotta Love Ron Paul's comments on it:]
