The Problem Lies With Congress

Our views: Riding with Russia, opinion, Florida Today

"That's not to say the Russians aren't exploiting their upcoming ridership monopoly by jacking up the price. They are, and the U.S. will have to live with it until it can field a new rocket and spacecraft. The fastest way to do that and end the dependence is for Congress to stop its endless fighting and reach a sensible compromise on a federal spending and deficit reduction plan that has Republicans and Democrats locked in trench warfare. ... Members of Congress can complain all they want about the Russians, and attack the White House, but they are the ones holding the next generation of spaceflight hostage. They should end their posturing and act."
