How Convenient: New Census Makes It Harder to Measure ObamaCare's Impact

How very . . . convenient.

The Census Bureau is changing the questions on the census so dramatically that it will be almost impossible to measure the impact of ObamaCare on the number of the nation's uninsured.

But if that weren't convenient enough, the new survey questions produce lower estimates of the number of uninsured, which will allow Democrats vaguely to attribute the good news to the much-hated new health law.

Now that's really convenient -- especially given that the census report comes out in the fall, presumably ahead of elections.
