House bill reins in Census Bureau, Justice - Washington Times House Votes To Cut Census Survey Done Since Thomas Jefferson So now the party of do-nothing wants to be the party of know-nothing. No census = no redistricting No census = ignoring the ethnic make-up of America's population It seems Republicans claim the census is an invasion of privacy........ but somehow regulating what we do in our bedrooms or what a woman does with her body isn't? Census-taking has been going on since the days of Thomas Jefferson. That tradition can go to the wayside, evidently. Don't screw with traditional marriage though........... Along with voter ID laws, it seems Republicans can't win anything unless they cheat. Edit--Ooops! Meant to say portion of Census! It's the ACS Republicans want to cut. That's what I get for posting before coffee. My bad.
