Let me know what you think of this. I haven't thought it fully out, but it seems plausible on its face.
Since postal employees are already being paid, they should be the ones doing the census. That would save a whole lot of money training and paying 710,00 census workers. There are 750,000 postal workers.
Let's say it takes them two days to accomplish the task. Two Saturdays the mail is not delivered but the postal workers are doing the census instead.
That could save us a WHOLE lot of money and it also prevents organizations like ACORN manipulating data to fit their unscrupulous agenda.
