    The 'Social Security Number Privacy and Identity Theft Prevention Act of 2007,' passed unanimously by the House Ways and Means committee, would prohibit the government from displaying Social Security numbers on any ID cards, and from embedding the numbers in card magnetic strips or electronic chips.

    This would be interesting because I believe that the SSN that is embedded on the cards is what gets us access to CAC enabled websites within the DOD after we use our PIN to access the card.

    I wonder if this would also render the fact that we put social security numbers on our doctor's notes and the like illegal. Hmm.
