Republicans Tweak Voter Suppression Bill, But Why?

Blah, blah, blah. The Republicans, realizing their Voter Suppression Bill is a mistake, are in the process of tweaking the bill.

But, what's the point?

Requiring an ID to vote doesn't solve any problems, it just costs Wisconsin more. In such a time of economic burden, where workers' rights are being threatened, is it really right to spend millions of dollars only to reduce the number of voters?

Thankfully, it appears there may be enough public momentum against this bill to stop it, because no matter what tweaks the Republicans make, it will still be the Voter Suppression Bill.

Also, will people, particularly the Journal Sentinel, stop confusing people by calling this a voter ID bill or photo ID bill. The bill neither creates a voter ID nor requires just any photo ID (not to mention that name says nothing about voting). So, please start calling the bill what it really is, Assembly Bill 7 or the Voter Suppression Bill.
