Right when we are in the middle of a transformation of our health care system, right when good data is more important than ever, the government is changing the rules.
But why … would you change [the census] in the one year in the entire history of the republic that it is most important for policy makers, researchers and voters to be able to compare the number of uninsured to those in prior years? The answers would seem to range from “total incompetence on the part of every level of this administration” to something worse.
It’s hard to put a positive spin on why the administration would do such a thing, or why Congress would let them get away with it.
