"While the country is going into more and more debt by the seconds, and while some even in Washington are beginning to be concerned -- after all, their share of the loot taken from citizens year round and culminating on April 15th each year could shrink just as will everyone’s who leaches off taxpayers -- I admit I have heard nothing at all about cutting funding for science. That science’s take is huge can be gleaned just from the fact that, according to Nature magazine, within a small segment of it, synthetic biology, the funding in America since 2005 came to about $430 million (compared to all of Europe’s $160 million)."
