"About one week from now, you will receive a 2010 Census form in the mail."
I am fully in support of the Census and I believe in it's importance. But this seems absolutely ridiculous to me! According to the US Census Bureau in 2008 they estimate 130 million housing units in the United States. At approximatly $.50 to print and mail these that is over 60 million dollars just to mail these papers out! Tell me how that makes sense? Tell me how when there are people in our country struggling to put food on the table, roofs over their families heads, clothing on their children's backs...tell me how spending $60 million to mail these out makes sense? I know I know...if given to the American people it would only be $.50 per dwelling, but every penny counts right??
What is your opinion??
