NASA manned space plans

I am fearful that NASA is going to build something on "the cheap" that will turn out to be both crappy and dangerous.

It would be better that we either:

1. Tax the rich so that we can pay for something good.


2. Stop U.S. manned space flight for a decade or so.


3. Fund the russian manned space effort. It makes no sense for the US, Russia, China (and India?) to all have similar manned spacecraft and independent launchers. Not to mention Dragon, Falcon 9, Delta IV, and Atlas V.  There is too much duplication of effort. Cooperation could save a lot of money.  Each nation need not have its own national launchers and spacecraft.
