Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann vows not to complete CensusPosted by DarthDilbert at 6/21/2009 10:26:00 PM
Outspoken Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann says she's so worried that information from next year's national census will be abused that she will refuse to fill out anything more than the number of people in her household.
In an interview Wednesday morning with The Washington Times "America's Morning News," Mrs. Bachmann, Minnesota Republican, said the questions have become "very intricate, very personal" and she also fears ACORN, the community organizing group that came under fire for its voter registration efforts last year, will be part of the Census Bureau's door-to-door information collection efforts.
"I know for my family the only question we will be answering is how many people are in our home," she said. "We won't be answering any information beyond that, because the Constitution doesn't require any information beyond that."
I have already come to the same decision for when I receive my census. It is none of the government's business outside of how many people reside in my home. If Komrade Obama wishes to send me to jail for this - so be it.
