38 ● Unbroken Government To a certain extent, the nature and extent of a policy crisis is dependent on the policy itself. Gun control is a sacred cow of the American government; protected in the Bill of Rights and staunchly defended by a powerful lobby (the National Rifle Association), perhaps it simply took the killing of 20 innocent children to get the attention of policymakers and give them the wherewithal to attempt a change in the policy paradigm. Does that mean that the lives of those killed and injured in Tucson, Aurora, Wisconsin, or any other site of mass killing is worth any less?

As we will see with the discussion of space policy, early on in its lifetime, the dominant policy paradigm settled upon was that of the necessity and importance of human spaceflight funded and directed by government itself. While the methods of human spaceflight have changed (for example, from expendable rockets, such as the Saturn V that went to the moon, to the partially reusable space shuttle), the agreed-upon direction, that of governmentrun spaceflight, has not. As a result, the House and the agency may be able to change the tools of policy but not the overall goals during this phase of the theory.

Bureaucracies then have a motivation to respond to their principals, even if the actual action of responding is not necessarily in their interest to begin with. The Congress and the president are not the only people to whom the bureaucracy can turn to in the search for greater discretion. Bureaucracies often attempt to move outside the realm of their principals to find political allies with which to shore up their own political power base. For many agencies, the support of interest groups can help insulate their activities from the Congress and the president, as can alliances with other bureaucracies.
