When will the United States return to space?

I don't mean just sending up shuttles, although resuming those launches would be something. Remember the hope we were all fed that a bold new future awaited us? That the US would lead humanity in space exploration. In 2004, there were 3 man launches. One Russian and 2 private, Spaceship I. NASA is in shambles, and their budget has been slashed continually for the past 30 years.

Now I'm not looking for Starfleet, but when the chinese and europeans have had more launches this year than us, then there's a definite problem.
