Morris Kline' s book "Mathematics, the Loss of Certainty" on how the discovery of geometries where perpendicular lines intersect in more than one point (ellipsoidal and hyperbolic) led to the efforts to determine whether Mathematics as we know it is consistent. Leads up to Goedel's Incompleteness Theorem.
The argument is "Cum Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc" as described in Latin. The similar phrase "Post Hoc, Ergo Propter Hoc" or "after this therefore because of this" dates back to 1704, according to Merriam Webster. I would assume "Cum Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc" is of similar age and origin.

"After controlling for enabling and need characteristics in logistic regression models, Veterans Administration (VA)-only users were 2 to 8 times more satisfied with their outpatient care than were VA nonusers on 5 out of 10 satisfaction measures.". Oh, and I have a source. You appear to have a mysterious "Someone in Congress".
