NASA - 2007 budget optimism

NASAwatch picked up the 2007 budget request sent to OMB at the NAC meeting

NASA is asking for an extra 1.4 billion, while cutting aeronautics and cross-agency support by 15%.
Science does well, nominally, exploration and ops better still.

Congress will not given them that much extra; I doubt the White House will even let them ask for that much in the formal budget request.

So, what will give? You play the game of where to cut the next billion, assuming they get a token few hundred million increase to offset the increased pork lines.
