What a shock that when you talk about making NASA a larger budget priority Joe assumes more taxes. Guess that’s how a lifelong tax and spender sees things. I’m thinking more along the lines of taking the 1% of the budget we spend on foreign aid and cutting it to the .48% NASA has now. Take that .52 percent you just saved that you were sending out of the country and give it NASA. That’s a revenue neutral shift I think the majority in the country would get behind.
Another 4 billion a year at the UN. How many want to raise their hands and say that’s money well spent?
The list goes on and on. Again, you’re talking about a 3.8 trillion dollars in spending. It’s not hard to shift enough to triple NASA’s piddling 15 billion.
