Census Jobs Falsely Boost Employment Numbers

A job is a job, right?


When it is a government job, it is paid for by taxpayers. When it is a temporary job like Census work, it is nothing more than a constitutionally unfunded mandated to count citizens we already know about, paid for with money we don’t have in order to allow us to allocate more money we don’t have to areas that shouldn’t be receiving federal money that we do not have in the first place!


The Federal Government has sent out letters asking for information. Some people have received more than one. Next, hundreds of thousands of workers are hired to follow up on the people we already knew about, but failed to return the form, as required by law.

We are also required to file income taxes. For those who do not comply, a follow up letter or two will be sent, but the government does not then send hundreds of thousands of IRS agents to your home to help you fill out your 1040. No, you are sent a summons to court. If they show up at your door, it is usually with an asset seizure order (ask Willy Nelson).

What is really happening with the Census workers is that we are paying them welfare and unemployment benefits to knock on doors. They are still living off of taxpayers. Most of these workers would prefer to have a real, permanent private sector job that adds to the GNP and is actually a revenue generating occupation. But the Obama Administration has regulated jobs into oblivion and wasted trillions of dollars “stimulating” their donors.

And the really cool part for Obama is he not only counts these tax draining jobs as “jobs created”, he also counts the taxes taken from the Census workers as revenue. Which means a portion of the money the government is borrowing to pay Census Workers gets counted as tax revenue. More tax dollars to be wasted.

The really bad news is America only grew private employment by 41,000 jobs while the Census Bureau hired 411,000.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
