Why Shouldn't Those On Food Stamps Be Required To Show A Photo ID?

The Nation Magazine is outraged over a proposal that would require those using Food Stamps to show an ID when utilizing the nutritional assistance program.

The same ones opposed to this suggestion probably think you shouldn't be required to document income levels when applying for the program as well.

If Americans are now required to show ID's in doctor's offices they have been going to for decades, why is it an outrage to require those on the public dole to acquire food to verify who they are?

It is claimed that the poor cannot afford to acquire proper identification.

But, by golly, it's probably a pretty safe wager that these indigents had the latest iteration of the iPhone® as soon as it was released and can operate the technical intricacies of the device with an adeptness that would put a NASA engineer to shame.
