Bullshit.

Show me one piece of legislation that calls for distribution of tax dollars based on population. It's hashed out by politicians.

I also hate the BS brainwashing commercials that imply that filling out a census form will improve local schools. Again, wrong. Schools use their own student counts to determine STATE funding. Federal money doesn't support local schools directly.

It's all about Congressional districts and representation - that's why it's in the Constitution.
