Out of curiosity....Obama says that every dollar invested into the human genome has returned $140 back into our economy. With those types of returns on investments, how can our country be in debt?

"If it was such a great idea it would be done by private industry."----Oh, you mean like space exploration, satellites and GPS, computer technology and creation of the internet, eradicating polio and smallpox, or creating a national highway system? Yeah, good thing we waited for private industry to jump on those things. Oh, wait...

@jgmancini - most of the things you mentioned were for military purposes. Not just because it a president thought it was a good idea that might create jobs. Also as the article noted these project had better than "The goals of the work are unclear at this point"
