The last NASA space shuttle which will shut the program down for good when it lands was launched this week. With the end of the program, thousands of people will lose their jobs and millions in tax revenue and tourist revenue will be lost to the people in and around Cape Canaveral, FL.
And the people in Florida are bitching at the government for the loss of the program and the jobs.
I’d like to remind the good people of Florida that they elected a Republican governor, congressman and U.S. Senator based on the Tea Party platform of less government, and cut the budget.
Like everyone else who ran on that platform in the last election and got election, they now say, “Cut them not me”. Can’t have it both ways bub, everyone has to participate in budget cuts, everything should be on the table.
A farmer in Iowa may think his farm subsidy for his pigs is more important than beach replenishment in DE, and vice-versa.
If we’re going to cut our debt, everyone has to give.
