Is there a problem here?
There are three key questions that should be asked when it comes to enacting any law that is supposed to solve a particular problem:
1. Is there really a problem?
2. Will this law actually solve that problem?
3. Will the negative side-effects of the law be acceptable?
If the answer to all three questions is not YES then the law should not be passed.
Kevin Drum says the Republican proposals on Voter ID fail the first test. I agree.
