The "Real ID Act" -- Here's Bipartisanship in Action

Senate Democrats have joined with Senate Republicans (the sane ones) to oppose the complete lack of debate on this Draconian bill. There are two crucial points here: 1. the bill itself, which is horrid, and 2. (and even more important) the fact that there has been zero deliberation on it, zero investigation, and zero expert witnesses called.

That's not the Senate, and that's not republican democracy. That's a rubber-stamp fascist rump parliament for an all-powerful executive. Not cool; not American; and, as this letter demonstrates, well beyond silly labels of "liberal" or "conservative" or "Republican" or "Democrat."
