It is interesting to me that Obama thinks the goverment should take over healthcare but not space exploration. Maybe the truth is that the number of individuals that will fly into space will not be enough to win an election for Democrats. Like every other idea he has it is upside down. It is because of these wasteful social programs of the 1970s that we abandoned the Apollo Project. We would have already landed on Mars by now if we had instead abandoned the "War on Poverty" we would still have the same number of poor people in the US. Democrats are idiots.
