Russian RD-180 Rocket Engine Limit Overturned, McCain Furious and Threatens Outright ban

John McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, believes fervently in the importance of the authorizing committees, those bodies charged with making congressional policy and placing restrictions on weapons program spending.

Today, McCain lost a battle against the appropriators, that small group of powerful legislative leaders who decide how much money the executive branch will get to spend. The senior senator from Arizona has waged a passionate campaign to restrict how many RD-180 rocket engines the United Launch Alliance may use to loft enormous national security satellites into orbit aboard Atlas V rockets.

McCain is REALLY mad: full text of his blow up.  

Shelby flips a bird back.
