Now that the elections are over, why don't I hear anything on the GOP pushing voter ID laws?

Surely it has to do with voter fraud and not some sinister plan to keep someone from voting. Now would be the perfect time to get a law passed to allow people to comply for the upcoming elections. I don't want to believe that they will only bring this up just before the elections again. Their constituents aren't that dumb. Are they?

Update:

@ cat lover. Were those laws drafted AFTER the election?

    Because they were only pushed prior to the election in an attempt to stop President Obama's supporters.

    But their efforts backfired. Thank God. Because once we saw what the GOP were trying to take away our right to vote, we became more determined than ever to get out and vote.

    No they aren't that dumb but as you said the elections are over and there is a good chance that Marco Rubio might run in 2016, if a Hispanic happens to be running for the republicans in 3 years do you think that the Republicans would want to try to scare off Hispanics citizens from voting for their presidential candidate?

    Then you are asleep. A number of bills in several States have been introduced, to make it even harder to have the proper identification for voting. And a couple of the bills even removed acceptable forms of identification that are currently allowed.

    But there is one thread. A concealed gun permit seems to be always an acceptable form of identification for voting.

    Oh you must have been on Holiday. The GOP is hard at work to keep the People from voting and WE THE PEOPLE are on their heels to prevent that.

    The rights of WE THE PEOPLE are being threatened constantly and we are wide awake to keep them.
