Government data is being politically manipulated on a scale unthinkable just four years ago. That is DEADLY to a free enterprise economy.
It is better not to keep data at all than to manipulate data and put out phony results.
The problem with lying is that eventually you have no idea where the truth lies. Everything becomes distorted.
One person posted last month here on FR that Colorado is over 2 months behind in processing unemployment claims.
How many states are doing the same thing??
