DontMakeMeComeBackThere: gameshowhost: Gosh, I wonder which political persuasion caters to the anti-science crowd and benefits from eliminating said science budget...

Um...law passed by Congress last year, signed by Obama, cuts budgets of EVERYBODY, but this particular article was focusing on its impact to science budgets...

Maybe you ahould leave this discussion to the grown-ups....

Well, I guess that means a certain political persuasion doesn't cater to the anti-science crowd nor does it benefit from eliminating said budget. Not only that, but I guess politicians aren't forced to make compromises.

/*psst* which party goes on screeds over items in the science budget, like, say volcano monitoring?
//oh btw - no, you may not include 'military research and development' as part of 'science funding'
