Statement On President Obama’s NASA Speech
I released the following statement yesterday regarding President Obama’s National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) speech in Cape Canaveral, Florida:
It’s disappointing that our "post-partisan" President puts such a high priority on political deal making when determining our nation’s strategic mission in space. The direction of our space program shouldn’t be dictated by how many electoral votes are up for grabs, but rather by what is in the best interest of our entire nation, now and in the future. The President’s plan fails to guarantee American leadership in space and the American people and Congress will not settle for it.
