The article is about a multi-purpose identification card, but the headline says it all. Democrats will never enact Medicare for All - because they need the Republican bogeyman.
If the Republicans were eradicated, the Democrats could no longer use their standard campaign theme - “WebadTrumpworse.” If Republicans were eradicated, elections would be contests between the Democrats and the Greens, and Democrats would lose and lose and lose and lose.
Republicans might like this multi-purpose identification card. Look at the benefits to them - if they manage to purge you (progressives) from the central files. The card serves as voter id, but without the card, you can’t vote. The card serves as a driver’s license, but without the card, you can’t drive to the polling station. The card authorizes medical care and Social Security benefits for you, but without the card, you can’t get any of that socialized medicine or any of those “entitlements”. Bingo!
Oh, I forgot - internet security is too robust for such an event to occur. /s/
