I have a question why is the US Space Program no longer funded by the government but Putin continues to fund the Russian space program?

Diversification and shift of interests.

Let's be clear - the Space Program is still alive. NASA is still there and doing crazy cool work. The space flight/transportation bit is being privatized. The shuttle wasn't the whole program nor should it be.

Uhhh Google it. Yeah I know I shouldn't say that, but some of your questions warrant it.
