Is there a NASA Plan B?

There was a lot of press the other day suggesting the NASA Administrator had ordered up a "Plan B" to preserve parts of the Constellation program if Congress refused the Obama Administration's request to kill it. Mr. Bolden, though, has said he's loyally supporting the Administration's budget and has not ordered up alternatives.
COMMENT: The negative response from Congress has been stronger then I expected - some of it has gotten downright nasty. Bolden is performing as his job requires, but it's hard to believe that, at some level, NASA officials are not discussing a range of things that might be implemented depending on what Congress finally does.
