Here’s conservative Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee on the REAL ID Act:
. . . REAL ID, that’s a huge mistake. It’s putting a burden on a state that should not be the state’s function, which is to provide the frontline of national security defense at the hands of a DMV worker at a state office. That’s absurd. And then not funding it. That’s a real problem. If you’re going to have federal program then the feds ought to pay for it.
