(UnitedVoice.com) – There is a belief among working Americans that politicians will say anything to get elected. Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) seems to have proven them right with recent statements about where he stands on voter ID laws.
On Sunday, July 4, during an interview on CNN’s State of the Union, the Democratic Whip said that he would support a proposal by Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) to make voter ID a federal law. Then he claimed he’s always supported it, saying that a voter ID law is the same as a voter registration card. He went on to say he isn’t in favor of “disproportionate voter ID” and that it bothers him that student IDs or some other ID won’t work.
Democratic Rep. Jim Clyburn says he's "absolutely" open to a voter ID requirement as long as it is "equitable:" "You ought to be able to vote with whatever ID that you have" #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/v9QynSQFTo

In other words, the congressman does not support voter ID. A voter ID and voter registration card are not the same thing. That would be like saying a car registration is the same as a driver’s license.
Furthermore, a school ID is not the same as an official state ID. There just aren’t the same standards when it comes to obtaining school identification. His comments make it clear that he actually does not support voter ID and he’s just saying anything to hoodwink voters.
