Suddenly, the Census Bureau changes how it counts insurance. ___ Out of the blue, the Census Bureau has changed how it counts health insuranceat the precise moment when ObamaCare is roiling the insurance markets.
Since 1987, the Current Population Survey, or CPS, has collected information on the health-insurance coverage status of Americans. The annual reports are widely cited because their large sample sizes improve accuracy, the data are gathered constantly, and they tease out state-by-state details. But this year the Census revamped the CPS household insurance questions, muddying comparisons between the pre- and post-ObamaCare numbers. The results of the new method will be disclosed this fall.

Funny, the same thing has happened with labor statistics and how they measure inflation.
It's not 37%.
How BAD is it, that they have to wait til Fall [election] to disclose this?
This is what dictators do. Look at Argentina.
Just another of the ways the Left controls the terms of the debate.
Maybe it's how good the cooked numbers will appear to be right before the election. Remember 2012 when the fraudulent numbers came out on employment with California just unable to be included in the report /s.
Dems know that the media will cover for them and lies usually get three days on the internet before corrections are allowed. By then most people simply believe the lies and internet searches forever contain more articles with the lies than with the corrections.
Once you have a command economy, you can get command results.
Can someone summarize the article? I don’t have a WSJ.com account, so can’t see the entire article.
I presume that where once 48 million people had no insurance, now after 7 million have been signed on to ObamaCare, 48 - 7 = 100% have health insurance now?
Is that the $hit they’re shoveling?
Really? Well then so did FR's spellcheck.
Sadly for the regime the insurance companies have their own method of counting.
At least that's how it works during Democratic administrations. (Since the personnel in these agencies is largely Democratic, a Republican President would have a hard time using them for his advantage).
