I worked at Thiokol (now ATK) for 31 years as an engineer and went through many ups and downs. When I read the Sunday's Viewpoint article by Senator Bennett, "Obama Wrong on NASA," I thought, "He's always blaming somebody else." Instead, Bennett should point the finger at himself and Congress for this mess, because they approve NASA's budget as well as the appointment of its chief. Bennett has been in Congress for 18 years. Where is his leadership to protect our capability and workforce?
