5. It's not a competition.

We don't have to choose between being a leader in space and solving problems at home. We can do both.

In fact, funding the space program creates tens of thousands of good jobs here in America. The money used to pay office workers, engineers, scientists and astronauts stays on Earth and gets spent in our economy. They don't stuff it into the rockets and launch it into space.
