    I think it is a great idea. Especially birth certificates of all children. It will reduce some children being claimed as needy by different family members as far as picture ID why not. You need it to get your meds to get in the hospital and to vote. What are they profiling the fact that you are alive and have not applied in several different areas for the aid?

    Thats just silly talk, why would anyone need an ID? I think they are profiling asking that.
