Surprise, Surprise...The teapartiers and Curz, Stockman and Weber Shut 'Er Down
Somehow this is surprising to many independents and even true conservatives. They're surprised that the crazy tactics of the Texas GOP congressional delegation would actually shut down NASA along with the rest of the U.S. government they love to hate. Now those technically-focused rocket scientists need to worry about their next house payment and food for the kids in addition to trying to create new space programs that can be funded despite teaparty attacks on anything done by the U.S. government. In addition to the14,000 space workers worrying, the local business community is having economic seizures for fear of losing the huge pipeline of U.S. government money. Probably no worry needed, I expect Rick Perry will invest the Texas rainy day fund as a small down payment for a Texas Moon program once Texas secedes again from the Union.
