UPDATE April 22, 2012 -- Lots of folks have posted comments lamenting the lack of interest by these Senators.
What can you do?
Join the National Space Society at http://www.nss.org. This is a nationwide grassroots space advocacy group.
You might also want to read a book by Shawn Lawrence Otto titled, "Fool Me Twice: Fighting the Assault on Science in America." His web site is http://www.shawnotto.com. Mr. Otto writes that less than 2% of Congress has a science background, and the overwhelming majority are lawyers trained to argue their client's position, not for the truth.
Posting a complaint on YouTube doesn't solve the problem. Everyone needs to become involved. Demand that your representatives in Congress support science and properly fund NASA, otherwise you won't vote for them. That's the only way you'll get their attention.
You might also want to watch Dr. Tyson's address to the National Space Symposium on April 17. It's on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLzKjx.... He specifically talks about the above video, at about 10 minutes into the recording. He learned that the Senators don't really care what he has to say.
