We simply have to quit expecting the government to fund everything. That kind of thinking got us here in the first place. The private sector will have to assume more of the lead in funding these types of projects as governments continue to spend themselves into oblivion. Want to spend money on research? Start a business and use it as a funding mechanism. Join with like-minded entrepreneurs. Want to continue to be disapointed? Sit around and wait for government money. Does this sound stupid? Maybe...but neither taxing the hell out of "the rich" or starving the poor are likely to be enough. Besides, both are immoral.
