The de-sciencing of America

Wow. There appears to be no limit to Republicans' desire to protect corporations over non-wealthy individuals. Sen. Santorum of Pennsylvania wants to hide National Weather Service data! As one blog puts it:
Let me get this straight. A senator, who claims to love the free market, wants to limit competition between the National Weather Service and private weather forecasters. A free government service, available to everyone online, would probably disappear, so a private service could flourish. [...] You don't suppose this has anything to do with the fact that AccuWeather is based out of Pennsylvania, do you?
Or the fact that AccuWeather contributed to Santorum's campaign fund? Or the fact that Santorum, like most Repos, wants to hack any federal scientific research that doesn't directly benefit businesses?
