Great, no US manned space flight for 20 years. Wonderful. How visionary, how utterly stupid. We build a space station and can't provide transportation to it. And our own space administration says we can't provide a manned transport for 20 years! Ever thought of ordering another space shuttle? Yes, there old and dated, but at least we know how to build one. Obviously it would be better to build a better one but can we afford to wait 20 years? It's not NASA's fault that they haven't been funded to do the needed work on new systems (Orion included). If we just shut the shuttle system down we will lose any manned near earth capabilities. What a waste. For lack of a dollar a universe is lost.
