    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.

    Now you are making shit up.

    This change has NOTHING do do with the Constitutional requirements of the census, and therefore has NO AFFECT on districting. It merely eliminates questions the government asks which are none of its business.

    Again, it turns out to be another democrat lie. The bill is to stop the portion of the census that is intrusive and used by the obama regime to formulate lawsuits against individual states. It is NOT to stop the census.

    This is as true as Romney's assaulting a gay classmate.

    If you do not answer the census, you are fined. Many of the questions on the census are not a Constitutional requirement. Therefore, those questions should be voluntary.

    Simple as that.

    You mean like the bogus claim that Romney hazed a homosexual when he was in high school?

    Yeah, that should be right on top of Congresses agenda.
