Census Changes Uninsured Tally
Just in time for ObamaCare.
The Census Bureau is pretty sure that ObamaCare will mean fewer people are uninsured. The trick is in the counting. A new questionnaire the Bureau is planning to use includes a “total revision to health insurance questions” that, in a recent test, counted fewer uninsured. The Census Bureau called it “coincidental and unfortunate timing” that the measurement overhaul will take effect at the same time as the health care law. “Ideally, the redesign would have had at least a few years to gather base line and trend data,” the Bureau said. Ideally ObamaCare would never have passed. But hey, the administration specializes in making up numbers, so this Census report will be right at home.
