A lot of this looks like mindless cutting,’ says retired Rep. Sherwood Boehlert, R-N.Y., former head of the House Science Committee. The budget fight pits a philosophy of cutting spending immediately against support in the last decade for doubling science spending toward reaping economic benefits and meeting challenges to U.S. research from China and India.” (via Physorg.com)
