"The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We're working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it." Lie, "The Administration does not support blowing up planets." "But wouldn't it be fun." "Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?" Because that's what this administration does. If it worked, there wouldn't be a reason to double the funding in order to 'fix' it. Plus the bonus that any flaw can be blamed on Bush and Reagan.

hey,planets that can support life are very rare and hard to find.
it's not very smart to be blowing up the ones you have found.

For a bit of fun, here's the official White House response to a petition calling for the construction of a Death Star, a la the Empire's deadly ultimate weapon in the Star Wars franchise. Personally, I find the best part of this letter to be the order of the two reasons given: 1) It would cost too much, and 2) Oh yeah, we don't want to blow up other plants, and also, flawed design.
