With Friends Like These, Who Needs Enemies?

Our two local congressman, Steve Stockman and Randy Weber, voted to reduce the NASA budget by $1BILLION for the next fiscal year. Then last week they both voted FOR a 2014 Military budget for a total of $595 BILLION (that's significantly over 1/2 trillion dollars for one year!). Though exceedingly stingy with the space program, the two spendthrifts proved they're not interested in saving"small" amounts of taxpayer dollars by voting AGAINST an amendment to reduce that $595 BILLION DOD budget by $3.6 BILLION for overseas operations the Pentagon doesn't want. They would not cut the DOD $595B by about 1/2 of 1% for unwanted programs.
