Mr. Speaker, where, oh where, have the jobs gone?

Where, oh where, can they be?

With the people so mad and the economy so bad,

Where, oh where, can the jobs be?

Well, the administration is planning on killing the Constellation space program at NASA. This will cost about 7,000 scientists and engineers their jobs at NASA in Houston. About 30,000 people nationwide in related work will be looking for jobs.

NASA has led the United States into being the world's greatest exploration country, and now the shuttle program is also ending. So in the future, if Americans wish to travel in space, they will need to hitch a ride with the Russians because we won't have the vehicles to travel in space. And of course China intends on being the number one space exploration country in the future as well. It looks like we are giving away our leadership and our dominance in space.

So where, oh where, have the jobs gone?

Where, oh where, can they be?

They are going overseas to the Russians and Chinese

That's where they shall be.

And that's just the way it is.
