Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) who is the ranking member of the Seapower and Expeditionary Forces Subcommittee, lashed out at the Obama administration today for its decision to cancel NASA's Constellation program.

In a statement the Missouri Republican said the move would leave the United States "reliant upon the Soviet Union" for future low-earth orbit access.

Yes, you read that right. The statement included a reference to "the Soviet Union" -- which ceased to exist in 1991.
