What the hell is wrong with them? They vote to lose $700 billion in government funding by keeping the tax cuts and sustain two wars, but go after chump change science programs? It's clear that either the Republicans don't know money management, or are just anti-science. It's most likely the latter. I am always baffled at how hard the Republicans work to make America a bad country. They claim "reduction of government spending" yet invariably call for the cutting of budgetary drop in the bucket programs of infrastructure improvements, welfare, medical care, science, and anything remotely beneficial to America. Yet they let wars rage on for years and always find ways to cut more taxes on the rich. And yet they took the House and almost the Senate. What the hell, voters, what the hell?
