Sequestration at NASA

Insightful comment at Rand's place, in response to the sequestration, that almost makes a bold prediction:

[James] Hansen, the minority business outreach office, the education outreach group and the SLS will be the LAST things de-funded at NASA.

Government responds to cuts by trying to do maximum damage and holding things hostage. They cut police and fire on the streets before they fire deputy assistant directors. I would not put it past this administration to turn off the lights on the Mars Rover in a highly publicized show.

It must be noted that Obama administration tried to cancel SLS, and was overridden by porksters in Senate, so he probably means the national space administration.
