WASHINGTON—Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) issued this statement in response to House Republicans’ census press event this morning:
"House Republicans borrowed a page from Seinfeld today: they made a show about nothing. Even though the White House issued a statement saying that they were NOT proposing removing the Census from the Department of Commerce or directing the Census from the White House, today House Republicans had a press event to decry what ISN’T happening.
