In a recorded vote in the US House of Representatives prior to midnight, Democrats cast 185 votes and Republicans 119 for the Senate NASA Authorization Act of 2010. The House voted 304 to 118 to pass the bill and send it to the White House for signature later this week in a historic victory for commercial human and cargo space launch and new propulsion technology programs for the federal space agency.

There were 64 Democrats and 54 Republicans or 118 votes cast against the bill. A roll call of the vote is linked. More from The Wall Street Journal, The Houston Chronicle, The Huntsville Times , The Chicago Tribune, AP and Bloomberg.

This paragraph seems to opine that the new NASA budget is good. Wrong. It is a mistake of the highest order to cancel Constellation.
