Medicaid requires ID, so please explain, libs, how voter ID is hardship for the poor

Medicaid requires ID, so please explain, libs, how voter ID is hardship for the poor

“Anyone who tries to argue ‘most voters don’t have ID’ is a liar, just like the president who said, ‘If you like your insurance, you can keep it,'” explained Wayne Allyn Root in a column at the Blaze. Root accused the Obama administration of scamming America about voter ID in order to perpetuate Democratic voter fraud during elections:

There were voting precincts in Philly where the combined vote was Obama over Romney by about 30,000 to 0. In those precincts GOP poll watchers were forcibly removed for several hours, until judges ordered them back in. During those hours were the ballot boxes stuffed? Did Democrat voters vote 10 times each? As absurd as 30,000 to 0 is (it’s just statistically impossible), maybe the right vote total was 6,000 to 0.

Calling voter ID a “no brainer,” Root pointed out that the Obama administration pounded on this issue as Republican’s way to target race and discourage minorities and the poor from voting, adding that the biggest liberal lie was: “It’s too big a burden for poor and minority voters to obtain ID.”

Doing some firsthand research, Root inquired at the office of his personal physician and discovered an astonishing contradiction to the Democrat’s claims. The nurses verified:

[N]o one can collect their “free” Obamacare services from any doctor without showing ID. And since everyone is now required to have health insurance (or is given free insurance), the government is requiring that EVERYONE have a photo ID.

According to the Washington Times, when Texas’s voter ID statue was blocked by a federal judge, the Obama administration applauded the decision. White House spokesman Jay Carney reiterated the White House position, saying,

This administration believes it should be easier for eligible citizens to vote, to register and vote. We should not be imposing unnecessary obstacles or barriers to voter participation.

But then why is the administration not equally adamant about removing the same “unnecessary obstacle” from Medicaid and Obamacare. If there is a valid reason for this seeming double standard, it’s time for the administration to explain it.

Root’s argues that there’s nothing to explain. Democrats, he submits, need to block the issuance of voter IDs because “they can’t win elections without fraud.”
