Entrepreneurship and private private enterprise is doing at a fraction the price what massive government bureaucracy could not do.

To put us what you think that's what's being charged right now.
Can why can't -- -- space programs bring our which it is the only.
The only taxi to the international -- station think about where this country's been in the space rates.
And you'll see what a colossal series of blunders have been made by administration after administration.
This administration's cut back masses but this president talks about competitiveness.
-- and meanwhile has got -- NASA.
It is an absolute a dismal my they performance on the Florida -- president just turned totally upside out an economic.
A -- is the inspiration -- in the world this has been the focal point of our research and development efforts over the course of for just about 45 years -- the achievements are meant so they they heroes of the Apollo program.

Future programs yeah I mean.
You about your original point you know we hope this is more efficient and they paid one point six billion -- guarantee your -- -- -- efficient by factors of at least ten.

And have real leadership.
That has a vision for this country's future and the contributions.

This is a president who is consumed with being a community organizer.
He talked about hope and change but he is inspired.
Nothing big you -- -- against deficit reduction the bigger picture.
Does that deficit reduction debt reduction measures we haven't we have four consecutive deficits of over a trillion dollars.
We're talking at the peak -- nineteen billion dollars a year for space exploration and now it's important perspective absolutely it's absolutely.
That we create growth that we in spy here.
Bring ideas to the marketplace and build well.
That's how it's done.
Not by small minded people pretending.
That -- somehow going to engage in the smallest of ideas.
For the longest periods of time I don't know why we would tolerate anymore of this we've had enough -- -- believe Lou Dobbs for space master general.
Any new faster know you can -- -- you can never used again I'm all about free enterprise I didn't you're not because and bureaucratic.
This is titles and and I I don't -- the title.
