Yeah, this is change we can believe in. President Barack Obama plans to change the US Census from the Commerce Department to the White House. I think I'm getting a little sick, but holy crap, is he serious?
If you're unaware, two major things can happen if the census does change hands:
"If one party were to control the census, it could arguably try to perpetuate its hold on political power."
That's right, ladies and gents, Mr. President could very well increase the number of citizens here and there to get more votes in the electoral college, and lower the number of citizens here and there so the Republicans can get less votes.
The second major change:
"Theoretically, a political party could disproportionately steer federal funding to areas dominated by its own members through a skewing of census numbers."
So what happens? Here, Mr. Homeless Man, I've got some extra cash. Please have some...oh and remember to vote "Barack Obama" this November. Or maybe extra commercials, or ads, or campaigns, or more employees, or this, or that.
This change is not something I can believe in.
