It looks like the nation's wealthy are not waiting for Mitt Romney to cut their taxes, they are simply waiting to leave the planet. According to a Sunday New York Times feature on space travel - Space Tourism Is Here! Wealthy Adventurers Wanted, new private companies are all competing to give the "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" set a seat on a space bound aircraft. While early flights will only send the well-heeled to the stratosphere, no doubt somebody is eyeing the moon and contemplating the first luxury resort. With tickets priced in the range of $95,000 to $150 million. Who needs a tax cut when you can simply leave the planet.
