Today Russia announced it will have two test launches of the Soyuz rocket before carrying humans to the ISS. This means that as of now, the world cannot launch humans to ISS. There is enough poor planning to go around on this one. NASA, Congress, Presidents Bush and Obama. The plans drawn up by the rocket wizards in the senate are too grandiose. We simply cannot afford the Constellations and SLSs of the world. Sadly, due to our debt, we could not afford Apollo today.
