OMB Watch on Census Cuts

America Would Know Less Under House Census Policy, by Gavin Baker, The Fine Print blog, OMBWatch (05/16/12).

In its frenzy to limit government and cut spending, the House has voted to eliminate an important and valuable national resource. Undercutting the Census Bureau would be a mistake. The less we know about our country, the harder it will be to find sustainable solutions to the challenges that face our nation. Turning off these streams of data would further limit our ability to address national priorities.
