Why is government in the business of science?
I think Healthcare should be privately funded for the non-disabled/non-elderly. If you want healthcare, get a job and pay for it.
Why is Government in the business of tending to boo boo's for the able bodied?
To answer your question, Government is in the business of science because science and the quest for knowledge serves all people.
Kinda like why Government is in the Businss of Schools and Environmental Studies.....except NASA does a better job, despite it's failings, than the Public School, FDA, EPA or a host of other agencies do.
I'd cut Millitary spending and Welfare spending both, happily, to have more NASA hard science projects.
Fix the pothole down the street already.
Because the Federal Govt. is responsible for Potholes.
Nice to see your understanding of Government is still as brilliantly limited as it's ever been.
