Interestin' story in Tuesday's newspaper about the census. The problem with the census is … you don't need to ask 10 questions to find out … how many people live in Bulloch County. … The only question that's pertinent … as it lists in the paper is number one, 'how many people are living or staying in this house?' The rest of the questions are invasive, intrusive and are not required by the … Constitution, which requires the census to be conducted.

If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the physical year 2007 deficit, the last of Republican budget. That deficit was the lowest in five years and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending.
