Slight Funding For Stem Cell Research

From this Reuters article, it seems the the US government (the National Institutes of Health in particular) is still providing a very small amount of funding for stem cell research. Any money to further this vital foundation for regenerative and healthy life extension medicine is welcome, but far more is needed. Stem cell therapies offer the prospect of cures for many, possibly all, degenerative diseases and effects of aging. Given the ongoing death toll from aging, shouldn't we be funding and supporting this research far more eagerly?
