CHANGE YOU CAN BELIEVE IN … US CENSUS TAKEOVER … YES HE WILL
There can be no good reason for this.
So this is the change that Barack Obama was really talking about during the Presidential election? An Executive branch politization and power grab of the US Census and counting Americans. What does this mean? A yet to be named director of the Census Bureau will report to the White House rather than the Commerce Secretary as has previously been the case.
“Any attempt by the Obama administration to circumvent the census process for their political benefit will be met with fierce opposition as this ill-conceived proposal undermines a constitutionally obligated process that speaks to the very heart of our democracy,” California Rep. Darrell Issa wrote in a letter to President Barack Obama. The letter was co-signed by North Carolina Rep. Patrick McHenry.
“Requiring the census director to report directly to the White House and placing responsibility for administration of the Bureau outside the Department of Commerce may even violate federal law,” the letter stated. “According to Title 13 of the U.S. Code, the Bureau is to be administered ‘within, and under the jurisdiction of, the Department of Commerce.’ According to U.S. Code, the Executive Branch is limited to providing support for the Bureau in the form of information and resources.”
So the question is put forth as to why Barack Obama would take control of counting Americans away from a US Government Agency. Could you only imagine if former President Bush had done the same? The hue and cry throughout the MSM would be deafening.
What can we expect from Obama and the US Census now … maybe something that reflects the acts of ACORN signing up potential fraudulent voters. With the voter registration fraud that took place with ACORN, can we only imagine what the politization of counting Americans will look like?
