Feel pushed? There's a good reason for that.

The businesses involved with the US Dept. of Commerce and NSTIC have become very rich from the sale and exchange of your data. They believe if they collected enough about you and sold enough of your information on a frequent enough basis, they now have the mindset that they own your identity.  Who you are becomes what is theirs.  Very few technology lawyers are going to defend you.  You will get an apology and an explanation, but you won't be getting any royalty check and you certainly won't be part of Big Data's profit distribution base.

You understand you played only a small part in this salvage yardsale of your identity, but you still played a part.  

If you volunteer up for any one of NSTIC's federally funded offshoots like: Open ID, digital drivers licenses, biometric passports for exhibit on smartphones, or agree to federate your Social Security Number as your log-in online, this is a way to manufacture consent and legalize an evolving digital brand of human trafficking.

Remarkable in it's calculation, NSTIC still has managed to regard for the public's role of consent in governance.  

There are many irons forged in the fires of public policy and lawmaking today which do not suit the public interest.  A comprehensive, voluntary federated ID "ecosystem" for the Internet, which is endorsed and standardized by the US government just happens to be one of them.
