You are so wrong. Congress has relied on scientific research at least since WWII. Perhaps before, but I was not involved then.

The GAO is staffed with scientists and that body is funded and reports to Congress. The fact that no scientist has been elected to Congress does not mean that Congress lacks scientific understanding. My contacts with several congressmen and Senators reveals that they are very aware of the significance of science, especially in the military arena.

Why don't you stick to things that you know something about?
