Posted on 04/16/2014 5:49:14 AM PDT by raygunfan
WASHINGTON The Census Bureau, the authoritative source of health insurance data for more than three decades, is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obamas health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said.

Can FOIA requests get at the motivation and decision-making on these changes?
I put the Census in the same category as the other pollsters with a strongly implied similar level of deserved active support.
Movable goalposts constructed with apples and oranges.
well...all they got from me last time was how many lived at my house. It took a few visits from them to make it clear that they were getting nothing more, but eventually the gave up.
I guarantee there will be no written records to FOIA. My gawd these people never stop: they seize every opportunity there is to lie, hide the truth, obfuscate or otherwise maintain the delusion of competence. And nearly half of the US buys their crap.
As stupid, mean, and evil as they are - and believe me I think liberals/socialists/fascists are all three in spades - I don't think they're that dumb as to have written anything too incriminating down on paper or in an email.
Actually it comes as no surprise that they are going to "revise" their polling, analysis, and reporting on healthcare. We know, and they know obamacare was never really about insuring the uninsured or helping anyone but themselves. This is all about power and control, not healthcare, that's just a means to the end. So sure, they're going to use this tactic to (further) fudge up the numbers and obscure the real purpose.
From now on the IRS will collect all the information.
I guess we can expect the “health” questions to be replaced by “gender” questions.
Are you or is anyone living with you gay, bisexual, transgendered, or just plain normal?
Just a means of providing more Beltway BS!
Maybe it was because every time he asked an unauthorized question, I started reciting Constitutional Articles, Sections and Clauses along with the corresponding Federalist papers, Constitutional Commentaries and Founder's quotes till his eyes glazed over..... then he left.
Kind of a shame, really. I was having such a great time!
It’s now a “FUBO” request.
-2009, in the earliest weeks of President Barack Obamas administration, the White House made the controversial decision to take the unprecedented step of moving the Census Bureau from control of the commerce secretary over to the White House ahead of the decennial 2010 census.
-Census Bureau has been directed to change the wording of its questions relating to health care coverage so that they can no longer be checked against the past three decades of data.
Really sucks when the criminals are in charge.
And the idiocracy put them there.
We are outnumbered.
