=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ Congress couldn't do science if it tried, neither could the Senate. Allowing such vapid uneducated dumbasses decide our science budget is like banging your head against the wall. We're killing our scientific standards with politics.

=============================================================== From: Tim Youngblood ------------------------------------------------------ I doubt good science will go extinct. This isn't about science anymore than the education committee having substantive discussions around that topic. It is about money.

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ Yes, but politics and the constituents of these morons help spread pseudoscience and bullshit. It does a lot of damage.
