The U.S. Census Bureau is using a travel policy for its media specialists that can cost taxpayers hundreds and even thousands of dollars for a single media interview.
Each time a media outlet like The News-Star requests to interview a census enumerator, a worker who goes door to door in local communities following up with residents who did not mail back their census questionnaires, Census Bureau policy dictates that a media specialist must be physically present at the site of the interview.
The bureau says the policy ensures enumerators do not unknowingly release information about their work that is supposed to remain confidential.
Show me any government run endevour that doesn’t cost us taxpayers. Just one.
Pardon me while I go to sleep and dream my favorite dream. [ZEROLESS & FREE ONCE AGAIN]
So far I’ve had 3 different census pollsters stop by my house and interview us. Talk about inefficiency. No wonder the advance chatter about the new employment report due next week is bleak.When this census is over, the inflated number hired to do it will be back on that list.
They need the political commissar there to ensure that the truth is hidden.
