“Results from the 2010 Census will be used to help each community get its fair share of government funds for highways, schools, health facilities, and many other programs you and your neighbors need. Without a complete, accurate census, your community may not receive its fair share.”
Direct quote from a letter I received* from the Census bureau last week.^ I think I might throw up.
The point of the Census is to get an accurate enumeration of the population in order to apportion Representatives for the House and Senate. There is nothing in the Constitution about anyone’s “fair share”. Ugh. This is what America has come to? Fair share of WHAT?
*But didn’t we all?
