The 2010 census cost ca. $13 billion so does the Census bureau have enough budget to do it over?
The printing costs are a relatively trivial amount, actual printing costs for the 2010 census were $76mln.
Side note: The 2010 census cost 1.6bln less than was budgeted. Can you imagine!

A tight printing schedule may cause higher costs though. And lots of follow-on cost increases further down the chain of procedures.

Seems one group plan to hand out free John McCarthy T-shirts and another will fly the Trump blimp.

How much of the event will shown by the TV services is not yet announced.

Meanwhile a judge blocked an order from Attorney General William Barr that stated certain asylum-seekers can be detained indefinitely.

U.S. District Judge Marsha Pechman in Washington state wrote that it was "unconstitutional".
More leaks from the white house on the eve of the hijacked July 4th celebrations.

According to leaked documents the celebrations were a huge success and drew the biggest crowds to any July 4th celebration period!

Interesting to see how it will turn out! On the one hand the WH are putting enormous efforts into making a great spectacle and on the other hand it was planned very late so most of "the great and the good" including top military have other plans so will not be there. Some forecasters are predicting heavy storms

Meanwhile the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco has vacated a previous ruling that allowed the Trump administration to impose additional restrictions on facilities that serve low-income women seeking abortions.

They also rejected the Trump administration’s request to temporarily halt a lower court order blocking the diversion of military funds for a border wall.
Quote:
“the use of those funds violates the constitutional requirement that the Executive Branch not spend money absent an appropriation from Congress.”

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Remember how upset Spanky was when the National Mall webcam showed his inauguration crowd was not so large?

No such problem today! The National Mall webcam is "undergoing maintenance!"

On the upside, there's less photographic evidence to prove him wrong.

Start of Trump's program delayed; no reason or timescale given.

There is severe weather in the area and low cloud which will likely disrupt the flybys.

Those airports in 1776 didn't stand a chance...

He wasn't even ad-libbing, he was reading it all off a teleprompter.

Is he on drugs?

And the battle at Fort McHenry was some 70 years before the revolution!

Otherwise a good non-partisan performance by Trump even the fake news leader CNN headlined "Trump calls bluff of critics in July 4th speech".

If Trump would have lived 300 years ago, then the airplane would have been invented at that time.

President Trump said Friday that a teleprompter malfunction was to blame for remarks he made during his Fourth of July address Thursday, in which he mistakenly claimed Revolutionary War soldiers “took over airports” in 1775.

Seems he is claiming the teleprompter failed and so he invented the airport stuff

Better than the alternative rumour that an unhappy White House staffer said "the old idiot will repeat any old rubbish we put on the teleprompter, anybody want to bet?"

House Democrats say there's little to no chance that Congress will take up USMCA, President Trump's replacement for the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), before the end of summer.

With only three more weeks scheduled to be in session before the August recess, House Democrats from across the spectrum are demanding that the trade pact with Mexico and Canada be renegotiated, citing concerns with the implications for labor and environmental standards as well as drug prices.

“We do not want to pass this agreement just slightly different from NAFTA with a little sugar on top and say, ‘See, we did something different,’ ”
“As I say to the president, to the administration, you have leverage. We want to change NAFTA,” Pelosi said.

Robert Mueller is being asked to testify yet again. He said he could only stick to the Report, & that is what he would and must do. After so much testimony & total transparency, this Witch Hunt must now end. No more Do Overs. No Collusion, No Obstruction. The Great Hoax is dead!

4:51 PM - 2 Jul 2019
It is not a Do Over!
Mueller's report stated "Congress has the authority to prohibit a President’s corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice".

So Congress is taking the recommended next steps.
