Over twenty years ago Rockwell International sold this Glorified Social Welfare Program to Congress and the US Tax Payers were robbed of several billions over that period of time.

Rockwell said that this was a Space Plane and would take off and land much like an airline would and turn-around time would be in the days and at most weeks. NOT!!!!

The Space Plane never did what Rockwell sold to the taxpayers but that didn't delay the checks from congress into Defense Contractor’s Bank Accounts.
They got rich and we got broke funding the SCAM.

Then along came the Bush's boys who decided it was much more profitable for their contributors (Defense Contractors) to fight wars than it was to explore space, so here we are today.

You should never vote for a Republican Conservative.
That's like chickens voting for Colonel Sanders.

the US spaceflight program is like a patient in a deep coma and (perhaps) irreversible, but, when a patient is so serious, you should try everything to save him, even asking for help to another doctor, maybe, to "one" that knows how to save it... :)
why don't (simply) accomplish the same missions with the given NASA budget?
it only needs to avoid to "burn" money in crazy and expensive projects like the Ares-1, COTS, CRS, etc.
I've a proposal (to be applied NOW) that costs less than 1% of the money burned by NASA to (only) add a 5th segment to the SRB
