“Currently, NASA’s budget barely surpasses 0.5 percent of the Federal budget, and has seen a steady decline in the proportions of its funding, now reaching all-time lows.

    Sending this to the White house is almost stupid. Obama has been pushing hard to get NASA more funding.
    It is the republicans in the house that are cutting it and demanding that all funding flow to THEIR pet projects.

    Sorta true, but democrats have had a bad record of funding NASA. Republicans, bless their christian souls, tend to spend money on things that could possibly apply to warfare. That is why NASA has done fairly well, most recently with Reagan and Bush I. Under Clinton, things really started to fall.

    Obama is the one who must propose a bigger NASA budget and try to push it through. He needs to demand 1.1 percent and settle at .9 percent, or something like that.
