REAL ID: A Major Victory is Near

"Repeal the Real ID Act" is DownsizeDC.org's oldest active campaign.

That's because REAL ID - which is a de facto national ID card - lays the foundation for a future police state.

That's why so many people have fought against it so hard for so long. And thanks to that resistence REAL ID still hasn't been implimented, six years after it became law! A big part of this is because of your pressure.

And now there's more good news . . .

There's a silver lining in the monstrous, 1,926-page appropriations bill (H.R. 3082). This bill rescinds funding for a REAL ID "hub." The House already passed the bill, and the Senate will consider it as soon as TODAY.

This hub would have created a centralized ID verification system, where states share driver information with each other. Without this hub, REAL ID suffers a fatal blow.

That's why we're asking you to tell Congress to support this cut in REAL ID's budget, and to repeal REAL ID altogether
.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

I'm glad that the House is rescinding funding for a REAL ID hub in the H.R. 3082 budget bill. My Senators should ensure that this rescission remains in the bill.

But you should do more. Repeal REAL ID entirely.

* REAL ID assumes I am a foreign terrorist or illegal immigrant, and that I must "prove" my innocence
* I am punished with higher fees, more red tape, and longer DMV lines
* And my private information will be centralized, making me more susceptible to identity theft and other dangers

Furthermore . . .

* The REAL ID law still exists as an unconstitutional, unfunded mandate on the cash-strapped states
* 21 states will still be out of compliance when it is scheduled to take effect in May, 2011 http://www.seattlepi.com/local/431425_realid08.html?source=mypi
* By de-funding the verification hub, there's no longer any point in forcing the states to implement REAL ID

This is America, land of the free. It's not the land of "Your papers, please." Help restore liberty to America and repeal REAL ID.

500 Million Sensitive Records Breached Since 2005

San Diego, CA, August 25, 2010 -- The most recent total from the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse’s Chronology of Data Breaches shows more than a half billion sensitive records breached since 2005, leaving Americans vulnerable to identity theft.

Employees losing laptop computers, hackers downloading credit card numbers and sensitive personal data accidentally exposed online -- the Chronology of Data Breaches shows hundreds of ways that the personal information of consumers is lost, stolen or exposed.

The Chronology of Data Breaches, a project of the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse since 2005, lists incidents involving breached consumer information, such as personal medical records, credit card numbers and Social Security numbers.

The most recent total, published last night, is a wake-up call to consumers who think identity theft can’t happen to them.

The Privacy Rights Clearinghouse estimates that the Chronology shows only a fraction of the total number of data breaches.

"This is a conservative number," says Director Beth Givens, "We generally learn about breaches that garner media attention.
Unfortunately, many do not. And, because many states do not require companies to report data breaches to a central clearinghouse, data breaches occur that we never hear about.
Our Chronology is only a sampling."

Data breaches of sensitive information, especially Social Security and credit card numbers, make consumers vulnerable to identity theft. According to a 2009 Javelin Research & Strategy, individuals are four times more likely to be the victim of identity theft in the year after receiving a data breach notification letter.
https://www.javelinstrategy.com/brochure-158

The recently expanded Chronology provides consumers and researchers the ability to perform rapid searches to identify trends in data breaches. It also allows visitors to look up businesses, agencies and organizations by name.

Unfortunately, consumers cannot completely protect themselves from a data breach. It is up to organizations that collect data on consumers to take the steps to ensure the privacy
and security of the data they collect and maintain.
