America has been dwindling its efforts in space exploration long before Obama even ran for public office. However, legislation brought up in the House (Republican controlled) took down what he had been looking for by roughly ~ 150 - 200 million dollars. (Based off it's introduction in May.)
NASA's proposed budget allocation in regards to % of the federal budget is lower, but higher in billions of dollars nominally allocated except for a few years (I believe 90-91) since 1970. So essentially, outside two years of George H.W. Bush, Obama has had more money (in billions) spent on the NASA program than every other President since before Nixon (1970).
You were saying?
