This isn’t a political debate. It’s simply a bunch of adults behaving like four-year-olds who don’t care what the implications of their actions are.
And of course it hits all government services – including NASA – who has connections and responsibilities far beyond American borders.
To that end, I tweeted this today:

@ZamboniPilot in shouldn't say 'lapse in government funding' it should say 'lapse in the federal government ability to govern'

There is a serious problem in the US…and it’s not Obamacare, it’s not the economy, it’s not debt ceilings (though those are all significant issues). The most serious problem facing American politics today is indeed the American Politicians themselves. They are far more concerned with optics and grandstanding than they are with delivering any sort of results for the people they supposedly represent.
Wake up America. Turf ’em.
