    Without looking it up, can you tell me...

    How much of every tax dollar is spent on NASA.

    I know some people.. Den, G, debo, etc., are going to know this thanks to Dr. Tyson, but I'm curious what the gut feeling of others here is.

    BTW I think you're wasting your time on the honesty policy. I don't think many people have the lack of ego to avoid googling it.

    Yeah, but hopefully a few more will here than in the GD forum.


    But, even if they look it up, at least they've learned something new.

    Probably 20% of it all, the same amount they spend on PBS and Big Bird.

    I don't know the exact amount, but I'm sure it's less than a penny. They never have gotten much.
    I no longer care about anything here except for the Entertainment Forum, which sucks; the Music forum, which sucks; and the Magic forum, which does NOT suck.

    Love y'all!

    Except for all of y'all.

    Gut feel would be not much. Somewhere in the 3-5 cent range per every tax dollar.
    French writer Alexis de Tocqueville warned about when visiting this fledgling democracy in the early 19th century that this "American republic will endure until politicians realize they can bribe the people with their own money."

    Ok, I'll play. I'm going to guess less than a penny of every tax dollar. We spend a lot of money on varrious programs and I feel you are trying to make a point.

    If it's over $0.0025 I'll be surprised.

    I was complaining about this it's low it's under a half cent I believe. Which is a good amount when you figure how big our budget is but it's not enough in my opinion. It's been pretty flat to slightly growing. I looked it up during the last debate because honestly I thought we slashed the budget (not sure why i thought that) but I remember being enraged when I thought we did during the last debate.

    I think a lot of programs should be cut, Nasa isn't one of them. Provides to much research etc that gets funneled to the private sector.

    One thing that is pretty eye opening maybe because I get tired of the argument Republicans dont' care about science and innovation is Reagan and W it appears had the biggest increases over their terms in the last 40 years. So thats' nice to see. Reagan was probably tied to the cold war.

    Of every tax dollar, I would guess less than 1 penny.
