They just get more dishonest by the day:
The Census Bureau, the authoritative source of health insurance data for more than three decades, is changing its annual survey so thoroughly that it will be difficult to measure the effects of President Obama’s health care law in the next report, due this fall, census officials said.
The changes are intended to improve the accuracy of the survey, being conducted this month in interviews with tens of thousands of households around the country. But the new questions are so different that the findings will not be comparable, the officials said.
An internal Census Bureau document said that the new questionnaire included a “total revision to health insurance questions” and, in a test last year, produced lower estimates of the uninsured. Thus, officials said, it will be difficult to say how much of any change is attributable to the Affordable Care Act and how much to the use of a new survey instrument…
Now, you can think that this is just some honest effort by the Obama Administration – or you can be rational and understand that they want a success that Low Info Voters can believe in and so they are just going to fudge the numbers until they get it. This is much like the way they’ve finagled around with the unemployment and labor force participation numbers – can’t create jobs? Then just change the way we report the number of jobs! Have a completely unworkable health care system? Then just change the way insured and uninsured are counted until you get fewer uninsured!
Just waiting for a report just before election day about how the number of uninsured Americans is at a record low…
But, it won’t work. The problem with ObamaCare is not in the marketing, it is the fact that people are having to pay more for health insurance than they did before. The problem is in the millions of people who have had their policies cancelled. The problem is in the fact that the bloody thing just doesn’t work. Democrats will pay the ObamaCare price this November no matter how many made-up numbers Team Obama comes up with.
