Back in 2009, President Obama made one of his first of many unprecedented executive moves: He snatched the Census Bureau out of the hands of the commerce secretary and placed it in the White House.
Conservatives were outraged. They predicted that this consolidation of power could result in skewed and biased Census reports. They warned that once the president owned the data, it would be the end of objective government statistics. The left laughed, and told them to calm down and retire the slippery slope arguments.
As Noah Rotham pointed out yesterday—turns out conservatives were right after all.
For the first time in over thirty years, the Census Bureau has decided to change its health care survey questions in order to supposedly produce more accurate data.
