BTC - Did someone forget to tell Rep. Lamar Smith of the 11th District that the Texas GOP adopted the repeal of the Real ID Act into the Lonestar State platform?
I expect him to butt heads with Rep. Ron Paul and over 10,000 Libertarian interested constituents as he continues to tow the national security- DHS line. That's before we even discuss minority voters and Democratic interests who hate Real ID in an anti-incumbent election year. Check your boosters, Smith. You should hope you still have a job by November if you plan on moving Real ID like it's a positive prospect for national security.
Federal Texas officials are beholden to the constituents and to the party they serve. They asked for a repeal.
Which means, PUBLIC, if you have anti-national ID concerns you may now ask any elected Texas Republican for anti-Real ID service and they should deliver.
So - Rep. Smith, where is my repeal bill?
