Obama to the moon for healthcare… er not so fast
Well here’s the thing…
A presidential review panel has determined that there isn’t enough money in NASA’s budget to send American astronauts to the moon by 2020, so unless Obama wants to wait…
Obama has basically been dodging asteroids over his healthcare plan recently.
So when his spokesman Robert Gibbs was asked if the president might go to Capitol Hill in September to rustle up some votes, he replied: “I think the president would orbit the moon if he thought it would help.”
Critics complain that Obama’s healthcare plan will lead to astronomical deficits.
