I see you didn't actually read any of the posts in this thread.
You saw what you want to see.

Yeah, 2020 is actually good news but it's being spun as some kind of failure.
It is. The project just became a waste of tax payer dollars if the station doesn't accomplish it's goal. To have to construct another one to properly and effectively set up bases on the moon and Mars is exactly the kind of pork-barrel spending that was mentioned that killed NASA in the first place.

I believe the real reason ISS is in the low orbit is both a consideration of easy access and and better protection from radiation.
