Jay Tyler writes: NASA Administrator Mr. Bolden went before Congress. He again played the blame game with comments of "That's not my Job" and "I'm not responsible to the Media". The plain FACT is that NASA has no backup plan to deal with the Russian problem. A problem that was designed by the Administration, and excutated by Mr. Bolden requiring the US to pay 71millon dollars for a taxi seat to the ISS. If the Pirate Putin says Nyet to NASA we are screwed, we have no plan. Before Congress Mr. Bolden, begs, and exhorts, for over a Billon US taxpayer dollars for FY2015 with the HOPE, that one of the Commercial Crew companies might be able to launch astronauts maybe in 2017. Mr. Boldens fix is we have no plan! Link to Original Source
