The use of a highly technical jargon offends C o n g r e s s because it appears to them to be a way of looking down on congressmen as ignorant laymen. This complaint is v e r y common and is often justified because the behavioral community fails to use communications skillfully - a c a r r y o v e r from a narrow academic training, perhaps. On the other h a n d , use of nontechnical terms might be viewed as nonprofessional. Congressional inability to understand concepts, reasoning, and data that are the common currency of the behavioral community makes it inevitable 32 B E H A V I O R A L RESEARCH AND GOVERNMENT P O L I C Y that the staffers ( a n d hence the congressmen) adopt a s k e p tical stance toward that community.

It has, of course, always been necessary to support scientists while they did their work; in the Middle Ages support was provided b y the church, k i n g s , nobles, and greater p a t r o n s .
