dumbass webster (R-FL)

daniel webster1 has sponsored a bill to abolish the american community survey. the house already passed his bill. as it happens the survey results are depended upon by thousands of researchers across the country, not to mention $400 billion dollars worth of federal programs that depend upon the ACS to determine where its dollars should go.

webster nevertheless believes the survey is a waste of money because "is not a scientific survey. It’s a random survey." i pity the people whose livelihood depends upon people like mr. webster. (the dude's an engineer, ferchristssake)

1- no, not that one. this one.
