    to deploy a privately owned LEO space hotel unless NASA "paves the way" first by buying commercial crew and cargo first.

    I reject that.

    I say NASA wants to keep ISS as a monopoly destination in LEO as shown by how Goldin handled MirCorp and how Griffin handled the proposed Atlas V Bigelow deal.

    Calls that commercial crew & cargo to ISS is a necessary precursor to non-NASA destinations could be (for some) a smokescreen to postpone the deployment of non-NASA competition.

    ITAR reform is critical here as well. I want U.S. NewSpace to sell to foreign countries to increase our exports and in China's case to get back some of those dollars spent by Wal-Mart shoppers.
