Following up with the Hairy Math used to generate an Administration Pleasing Unemployment Number… or at least the best they can fabricate from their backside… comes the Census Bureau.
From the New York Times:
“An internal Census Bureau document said that the new questionnaire included a “total revision to health insurance questions” and, in a test last year, produced lower estimates of the uninsured. Thus, officials said, it will be difficult to say how much of any change is attributable to the Affordable Care Act and how much to the use of a new survey instrument.”
“We are expecting much lower numbers (Of Uninsured! – Mike) just because of the questions and how they are asked,” said Brett J. O’Hara, chief of the health statistics branch at the Census Bureau.”
I promise you that is not how it will be reported…
It will be reported that Obama Care is a Huge Success and we’re all better after we destroyed the finest Health Care System on the Planet and Replaced it with Socialized Medicine. So Pat your Collective selves on the back… Comrade.
Should someone be asking “Why does any revision need to be conducted in the First Place? If there is to be ANY revision of the Census shouldn’t it be to stop asking intrusive questions the Government has no business asking? Might the revisionists focus their attention on correcting this instrument of measurement to perform exactly and only what the Founding Fathers intended it to?”
At what point does the entire population recognize that the game is rigged and if it’s not there is some Socialist, somewhere, working on making it that way?
And if we Do Figure this out… do We, at that point, demand truth? Some point? Any point? Do I even have a point?
I know… that would require paying attention which requires makinganeffort. So, no.
But, just in case you didn’t think the Bureaucrats at the Census didn’t have a sense of humor!
“Another Census Bureau paper said “it is coincidental and unfortunate timing” that the survey was overhauled just before major provisions of the health care law took effect. “Ideally,” it said, “the redesign would have had at least a few years to gather base line and trend data.””
Well, Of Course.
There should be a laugh track played behind that paragraph. At least then I wouldn’t feel like be intelligence is being assaulted.
Sorry to bother you with this… we can all go back to our beer now.
A related post I just read from The Last Refuge:
“Five years ago many of us were talking about why the White House would take Census Polling responsibility away from the Dept. of Commerce. At the time we did not know specifically why they were doing it – but we sensed it was nefarious. We predicted it was a typical Chicago Politics strategy to mold comparative data that directly would show consequences to long-term policy. We were right.”
I had forgotten about that… I could blame it on the beer, but that would be ridiculous.
