Fox News: GOP proposal would require food stamp recipients to show photo ID The Democrats are put in a very awkward position with this bill. They have to do something to reduce food stamp/EBT fraud, but if they go along with this idea, they are forced to back off their argument against photo IDs for voters. Why? Because the crowd that uses EBT cards is the same crowd the liberals claim can't afford to acquire photo IDs, and it presents a "hardship" on them to require an ID at the voting booth. Great strategy by the GOP, or just a blundering coincidence?
