image TAMPA, FL - As NASA announced three new agreements yesterday as part of their Commercial Crew Integrated Capability program, an initiative designed to develop the next generation of space vehicles that will carry American Astronauts into orbit, Mitt Romney continues refusing to tell Floridians the truth about his vision for the space program. Obama for America-Florida Press Secretary Eric Jotkoff released the following statement:

"President Obama has laid out an ambitious new direction for NASA by setting the groundwork for a sustainable program of exploration and innovation that will create jobs on the space coast and usher in a new era of human space flight. Yesterday's announcement demonstrates the continued progress in President Obama's commitment to developing innovative technologies that would allow commercial space transportation capability and partnerships with the private sector companies geared toward achieving safe, reliable and cost-effective access to and from the International Space Station.

"As Floridians have seen President Obama's continued commitment on moving our nation's space program forward, Mitt Romney refuses to answer even the most basic questions surrounding space policy. He won't say if he supports President Obama's efforts to support and grow America's commercial space industry, and as each day passes, it becomes increasingly clear that Mitt Romney has no clear vision for NASA." - Eric Jotkoff, Obama for America-Florida
