I'd download the ruby code and generate the OSM files directly from the
TIGER data.  I'd be happy to help you get running with this if you need

Basically, get this:


and run 'sh tiger-zip-to-osm [optional regex]'.  It'll start downloading
TIGER data from the census bureau generating the .osm files.
