This would be a tremendous waste of taxpayer money. Look at these forums and you get some idea of how many different (and sometimes conflicting) ideas they would be buried with. Look at how long Healthcare took (and how much time was spent) while nothing was done on the economy. Asking for this is would create a bureaucratic nightmare.sftommy":4370l5a0 said:"Also, shouldn't the tax-payer at least be able to recommend to NASA certain ambitions or directions, and then have a NASA appointed panel discuss the legitimacy of those proposed directions without political (W/H) interferance depending on which party wins every 4 years or what corporate lobbyists have in mind?"
