    500 million for a dead rocket program

    NASA's Ares rocket dead, but Congress lets you pay $500 million more for it

    WASHINGTON — Thanks to congressional inaction, NASA must continue to fund its defunct Ares I rocket program until March — a requirement that will cost the agency nearly $500 million at a time when NASA is struggling with the expensive task of replacing the space shuttle.
    Another $500 billion, about $500 per taxpayer, down the drain due gross incompetence.

    You should recheck your math.

    Calculated based on Chinese. After all, they are the ones actually funding the USA.

    Yes, I know. I got the figures from a blog, and you know how they can exaggerate. The real figures are $500 million, which amounts to only about $5 per taxpayer. Still, half a billion here, three quarters there, pretty soon, you're talking about real money.

    What's stupid is we have a government that rather than tell them to spend the money elsewhere they are going to continue building it just because they are getting funds that were supposed to be stopped.

    Re: 500 million for a dead rocket program

    Is this the same congress that wanted to jack up taxes, because of deficit spending?


    Just curious.
