Congress approves all funding. They cut funding for Apollo before it was even finished. They redirected it to the shuttle program that stagnated for 30 years.

So the question becomes if NASA still has a budget in the billions, why can't that money be allotted toward more moon exploration?

I don't understand the reason for not going back.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11330901

NASA's budget has been hacked and slashed since Apollo. They also don't just get a lump sum to do whatever they want. Their budget is approved for individual projects and often cut from what is requested for those. You want to go back to the Moon, talk to Congress. The problem with that is most politicians are more worried about the next election. Trips to the Moon and Mars won't pay off for them in their term and they definitely don't want it to pay off for the next guy.
