    “Over the last few years, Congress has added back funding for the planetary program that the Office of Management and Budget has cut.” It’s time for the President to tell OMB which is part of the executive branch to follow Congress’ lead funding Planetary Science at the $1.5 billion level. Spare us the campaign rhetoric and exercise your Constitutional powers and restore the funding.
