Re: NASA's budget: Help save space exploration!

Politically there's no reason to send people to Mars as Congress can't see past the next election, much less past the next 5-10 Congressional elections it would take to get a human on Mars.

If and when China starts seriously gearing up to leave Earth, then you'll see the US make a concerted effort to leave LEO again, but not until then.
