If The Facts Don't Fit, Change The Facts: How The Obama Administration Undercuts Public Confidence

John Adams, the second president of the United States, once noted, “Facts are stubborn things.” Well, not in the Age of Obama, where “facts,” like the number of uninsured Americans, can be easily changed to suit the president and his agenda.

Last week the U.S. Census Bureau announced it will use a new way to count the uninsured. The Bureau concedes the new approach is almost guaranteed to produce lower uninsured numbers—at exactly the time that President Obama wants lower uninsured numbers. Coincidence?

The Washington Post quotes Census Bureau Director John H. Thompson as saying, “I can assure you, I have had no discussions of this with the White House or with anyone else in the administration.” But wasn’t that what former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman snidely told Congress, then later news reports showed his name on the White House visitors’ log 157 times?

To be sure, there has been a long-running debate over whether the Census Bureau overcounts the uninsured, so an effort to revise the system would be helpful. With any other administration it would be reasonable to give it the benefit of the doubt, but you cannot make that assumption when Obama is involved. Indeed, the administration may have tipped its hand early.

Obama moved the Census Bureau into the White House.
