  1. After the sequester kicks in, I would certainly recommend restoring and even greatly expanding federal science spending, though no blank checks….

    Why? Science should be funded privately.

  2. The sequester should be put to death,it doesent even hit the main long term driver of our debt.Healthcare spending takes forty cents out of every dollar spent by US government.

      Why should health care be the business of government? We need food but do fine with private companies producing and delivering it to consumers without the help of government. The big problem with the sequester is that it is not enough. What you need is a true cut in spending and the first step should be a reduction by 50% or more that is accompanies by a similar reduction in taxes.

  3. Scientific Research is a low priority, since 54% of voters are women, and women don’t really understand why scientific research is important. Research funding is not received directly by women, so they don’t want it funded.

    Any mature democracy becomes a society where the primary role of government is to transfer wealth from men to women. SS, Medicare, and most other types of govt. spending are 70-80% transfers from men to women. The push to insert women into the military (regardless of the effect on defense) is to attach one of the last parts of spending that does not directly go to women.
