You're bitching about the census?

Really?

It's not legislation, it Constitutionally mandated.

And of course it costs more, we're in a bigger country counting more people, and more than ever aren't "officially" here. Was there waste? Probably. Enough to lower the cost to make it less than past efforts? I doubt it.

But Keynes didn't advocate holding a census to stimulate the economy.
