    Just imagine what would happen if every citizen was under counted? That would really throw a monkey in the works.

    The problem is that liberals love doing things multiple times - like voting. Wouldn't surprise me if they found a way to maximize the census count in their favor for congressional representation. We really don't need conservatives helping them in this.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    Do they even ask what party you are on the census?

    And if they do, they need to ask "If you answered, Democrat, are you living or dead?"

    The supreme court has a majority of conservative justices, one of whom Trump put there. That excuse does not have any legs.

    You always contribute a lot of humor to discussions. The decision was unanimous?

    What principle of law did SCOTUS rely on?

    So Trump is not going against the SCOTUS. He is just going to gather the data from other agencies. I think that makes more sense anyway. After all the social security office will have a list of all active SS#'s which you can only get by being a citizen.

    Yep. Left wing pundits are trying to spin this as a humiliating defeat for Trump when what he really did was make a successful end-run around Democrat obstruction. I dunno, that looks like a win to me.

    That was a good move on his part - cooler heads prevailed in this case. The president bucking a supreme court ruling would be a very, very bad precedent, if not worse.

    It would have been a very bad move to try to go over the ruling of SCOTUS, apparently even Donald Trump could understand that
