The ISS ground control is at Johnson in Houston. 3200 employees, $3.2b in local spending in 2014.

Rest assured that if ISS was controlled out of JPL, Lyin' Ted would let it twist in the wind.

Oh I'm well aware, but still a beautiful hypocrisy. "Only the folks in my voting block matter". Not a sentiment limited to Republicans, either, of course.

Edit: although one could also argue that this self-interest is somewhat akin to a system of checks and balances that optimizes what's best in the national interest. Whatever.
