+ - Partisan Food Fight Erupts Over NASA, Commercial Space

Submitted by RocketAcademy
RocketAcademy (2708739) writes "Until recently, space policy has been a non-partisan issue. Even when politicians disagreed on space-policy issues, that disagreement rarely aligned with party lines. That has changed in the last few years. Now, one organization is throwing fuel on the political fire.

The Space Frontier Foundation has called Republicans the Party of Big Government Space. SFF is upset about the GOP platform, which lacks specifics about space policy. According to the SFF, the GOP “has nothing but hackneyed praise for NASA, and doesn’t even mention the increasing role of the private sector.” The Obama campaign quickly echoed the statement.

But NASA Watch points out that the Democratic platform is even less specific than the GOP's. Others express concerns that partisanship harms space policy."
