And the Republicans say that they would rather scrutinize every program than to allow the institutions such as NSF to determine what projects should be funded. Yep, I will really look forward to some of the idiots and anti-science politicians examining science-based research.

Looks like we will be in for another 2 years, at least, of anti-science sentiment from the House. For example, we have the head of Environment and Economy Subcommittee, John Shimkus, who believes that God would not let climate change occur. Just a small sample of what we can look forward to as we cut science spending.
