Another Example might be the Bush Admins cancellation of Stem Cell Research, the science then leaves the USA and goes to Australia, China, Japan and some European countries. George W. Bush also vetoed a spending bill that aimed to boost federal funding for the National Institutes of Health. In the Britain., Singapore, South Korea, China, Japan and a handful of other nations, research on ES cells enjoys generous government support.

If those countries want to pillage their people to fund scientific research, then that's their business, but we shouldn't follow their bad example. Every cut in federal funding for science should be welcome. It should be cut to zero.
